With all the cold and flue ickies going around we have been so fortunate to only get a mild cold in our household. But even getting that made me want to up our preventative game. Enter Elderberry syrup.
This is such an easy DIY, and a game changer in the yucky germ months. Making it yourself lets you know what's in it, and it's so much less expensive than store bought! I like to taylor the batches for our families needs too, obviously there will be oils, why would I ever leave out such tools, I wouldn't. As with all natural preventative measures you'll find mixed reviews on elderberry syrup, especially if you are a pregnant or breastfeeding mama. My OB is all for elderberry syrup, and loves Young Living Essential Oils, so with her permission I feel confident taking this to keep mama and baby's immune system boosted during this season. Please ask your Dr. and research for yourself. All opinions are my own, take charge of your health the way you best see fit.
Big internet hugs, stay well this season!
