Some of study results prove that Echinacea has the potential to shorten the duration of colds. Native Americans used Echinacea as a pain reliever as well, including for many symptoms that accompany cold and ‘the ick” like headaches, sore throats and stomachaches.

ELDERBERRY SYRUP DIY INSTRUCTIONS
To Make Your Elderberry Syrup:
• Empty jar contents into 2 1/3 cups cold filtered water in a stainless steel or glass pot. Bring to a gentle boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 45 minutes.
• Remove from heat and allow to cool to near room temperature. If available, use a potato masher to mash the herbs in the liquid at some point during cooling.
• Once cooled, pour into a large bowl through a very fine strainer or standard strainer lined with cheese cloth. Mash the herb mixture, or squeeze it in the cheese cloth to get all of the liquid out.
• When cooled, add: 1/3 cup raw, local-to-you honey and 2 Tbsp. raw apple cider vinegar. Pour back into the bottle and store in the refrigerator. Your syrup can last 3-4 weeks, perhaps longer with raw apple cider vinegar added and depending on frequency of use.
In health, enjoy!
