ELDER {flower, leaf, berry, bark}

The medicinal properties of tart, sweet, elderberries are similiar to those of the flower. But the berries are also anti-viral. Elderberry syrup soothes coughs, helps treat respiratory infection and relieves allergic reactions. The wonderful flavor of elderberry syrup makes it an excellent remedy for children.
