Earlier this week I did a workshop at Back To Earth. It's a little gem of a shop in Lavington that makes skincare, soaps, cleaning products and even my fave cereal Weeds & Seeds. Online shopping is also available, so be sure to swing buy their page and stock up.
At Back To Earth, Kiley taught us to make essential oil blends, sachets, tub tea, homemade dishwashing liquid and Elderberry Cough Syrup. It's all natural, full of antioxidants and quite simple to make.
You start with Dried Elderberries...you should be able to purchase them at a health food store or good grocery store like Nature's Fare, Simply Delicious or Whole Foods.
Now, I was just about to download the images I took and type out Kiley's recipe, but I happenned upon this post by Donielle Baker from Naturally Knocked Up. She uses the same recipe and has done a fine job, so I am going to ride on her coat-tails on this one and sing her praises.
Please hop on over to her tweaked post Tips for Making Elderberry Syrup to learn how you too can benefit from Elderberry Syrup this cold and flu season.
Excuse my laziness but I have five kiddos here for dinner and I'm flying solo...thanks Donielle, love your page despite the 'knocked up' part which is pretty much the last thing I need in my life right now.
happy weekend friends,
