WHAT IS ELDERBERRY SYRUP?
Elderberry syrup is made from the fruit of the European black elderberry shrub also known as the scientific name Sambucus nigra. It has a robust, sweet yet tart, and slightly earthy taste to it. This flavor combination makes elderberries one of a kind like no other berries on the market. Elderberry syrup is full of antioxidants, vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium, and calcium. It has an immune boosting benefit, anti-viral effect, anti-inflammatory properties, and impact on cutting the duration of colds and flus. It is best to take daily (one tablespoon for adults or one teaspoon for children over the age of one) to be preventative about immune health and to aid the body with healing sickness.
Sweet Efflorescence has a core mission to only use the highest quality ingredients in our syrup and future products. We source certified organic dried elderberries. Our raw honey comes from a family owned business of local beekeepers (Hometown Honey) who have been in the beekeeping industry since the 1990s in Georgia. We use organic ginger root powder and organic Ceylon cinnamon powders in the batches to add some extra flavor and anti-inflammatory benefits. Ceylon cinnamon is higher quality and less common than Cassia cinnamon and has long been prized as a cooking spice. It’s described as having a delicate and mildly sweet spiced flavor. Our final ingredients are Wild Orange and Clove essential oils from doTERRA. We trust their sourcing and quality testing to be superior to other essential oils on the market. They can be safely ingested internally due to being medical grade oils.
