Elder Berry (Sambucus nigra)

Found these beauty’s just in from along the tops of the cliffs of Normandy beaches. It was such a delight to find them. I wonder if the soldiers ate them in the war. There are so many other herbs and berries around here too.

In herbal medicine we use elder berries for immune enhancing and it is anti viral and anti oxidant too.

Great medicine for colds and flu’s.

The Elder flowers are also very medicinal and helpful for any upper respiratory inflammation especially with fevers as they are diaphoretic and anti-catarrhal. Elder flower tea soothes sore throats and sinus type headaches.
