This one’s a bit like a cure for everything. If you suffer from allergy, asthma, flu or lots of other illnesses that require you to need to be decongested, you’re going to love this recipe today.
The recipe combines the power of elderberries, raw organic honey (make sure it’s raw, and local is good for allergies) with apple cider vinegar which you’ll know is good for lots of things!
Benefits of Elderberries
-Helps prevent the flu
-Full of antioxidants
-Helps treat the flu, bronchitis, colds, viral, and bacterial infections. (Use as a cold/flu -medicine)
-Can help treat asthma and allergies
1/2 cup dried elderberries
3 cups water
1 cup local or raw honey (I chose local to get the allergy relief benefits)
2/3 cup raw organic apple cider vinegar ACV
Fill a pot with water and dried elderberries. Bring to a boil and let boil for 30 minutes. Take off heat and mash elderberries up well (I used a potato masher). Strain out the liquid into a separate bowl using cheese cloth, coffee filter, or something similar. Once strained add honey to the elderberry liquid and stir well. Then add ACV. Place in a jar and put in the fridge for up to 6 months.
To use: Adults 1 tablespoon a day
Children: 1 teaspoon a day.
You can take this straight or mix it with some water.
If you are using it as a flu/cold medicine you can take same dose, but every hour instead of just once a day.
