ORGANIC ELDERBERRY, whole
Botanical Name: Sambucus nigra
Origin: Croatia / Albania
Production: Elder is a flowering plant that is native to Europe, Northern Africa, and Western Asia. It produces large clusters of small, white flowers in the spring, followed by small blueish black (sometimes red) berries.
Qualities: Elderberries naturally contain vitamins A, B, and C, and they have a long history of use in traditional European medicine. The berries and flowers of the Elder plant are most commonly used to boost the immune system, improve heart health, treat coughs, and cold and flu symptoms.
Common Use: Elderberries can be used in healing teas, tinctures, and syrups, and are often combined with Echinacea. They have also been used in cordials, wines, and even ketchup recipes. The dried berries can be added to muffin or pancake recipes for a flavor similar, but less sweet, to that of blueberries.
Storage: Store in a cool, dark, dry place in a sealed container.
Safety: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using any herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.

They are beautiful and made the most delicious Elderberry syrup. Flavor is wonderful, and the berries are a very good size. Would highly recommend to everyone. Thank you for producing such a high quality product. Warmly, Lori DeBoer
This is my second online order placed. The service is fabulous however I find your shipping costs are very expensive. The customer should have options of how they would prefer to have their purchase shipped and at what cost (i.e. mail vs. courier).
Love the Elderberries!
Very happy with products here.
Very happy with these elderberries and the fact that they're organic. Have made some syrup for cold and flu season. These are very hard to find, and it's good to have Organic Matters to go to. Price is great too. They are careful with packaging, and items arrive quickly.
It was incredible! Great customer service, incredible prices as well as fast shipping to the U.S. Thank you!
