Everyone knows, that fall is the beginning of the cold and flu season. After spending the summer outdoors in the fresh air, all of a sudden we are cooped up indoors sharing all the germs. The kids are back at school, catching all the viruses, colds and what have you, only to bring it home and share the love with their families. Who then bring them to work, and on and on it goes. Blech!
For the last couple of years, I have been giving my family elderberry supplements and using the homeopathic medication Oscillococcinum at the very first sign of a cold or flu. I have found that they really work, and cut down the duration of illness and the severity of the symptoms.
I usually just buy Sambucol Gummies and the Boiron-Oscillococcinum at the grocery store or online, but I have been wanting to learn how to make my own elderberry syrup. We have even planted a couple of elderberry bushes in the last 2 yrs so that hopefully soon I will be able to make this!
This is why I chose to feature this weeks article. I also love the idea of it being low sugar. DIY Low Sugar Elderberry Syrup for Cold and Flu, its what every family needs this time of year, so why not make some?
