Faster wellness with elderberry

Elderberry contains substances that enhance the immune system and are effective against many different types of cold viruses. The flowers contain substances that are primarily perspiring and infusions of these are used for the treatment of colds, coughs and upper respiratory infections,

Here are two recipes of elder tea.

Tea number one:

1. Dry the leaves and flowers on a sheet for 4-5 days or until they are completely dry and chapped.
2. Take 2 teaspoons of elderberry for every 2 cups of water.
3. Add dried elderberries in a mug, pour over boiling water and let stand 4-5 minutes.
 Drink only 2 cups per day to avoid the laxative effect. If you want to dry the flowers faster, so you can do it in the oven, on the bottom shelf for about 5-6 hours.

Tea number two:

5 elderflower bunches
1 handful fresh mint leaves or lemon balm
2 cups brown sugar or raw sugar
1 liter of boiling water

Fresh and good to drink.
