Organically grown and harvested by Curate Essentials in Fayetteville, NC

Botanical Name: Sambucus

People use elder flower for breathing problems such as asthma and bronchitis; for colds, cough, and sore throat; and for painful conditions such as headache, nerve pain (neuralgia), joint pain (rheumatism), toothache, and swelling (inflammation).

Other uses include treatment of bruises, cancer, intestinal gas, epilepsy, fever, gout, psoriasis, sores, syphilis, and fluid retention (edema) due to weak heart function (heart failure).

Some people use elder flower as a “purifier” that empties the bowels. It is also used to rid the body of extra fluid by increasing urine production (as a diuretic), “sweat out a fever,” promote healing, and cause vomiting.

Elder flower is also used as an eyewash, mouthwash, and poultice.
