Where to Find Elderberries

Elderberries (Sambucus nigra) are found mid-autumn, especially in mountainous areas, in the valleys of rivers and streams, where the sun’s rays penetrate more difficult, and the vegetation cycle of this plant is delayed. Most often we find the elder in the edges of the forest, and forest roads, in the forest cuts where the trees have not yet regenerated, and where the small shrubs grow luxuriantly.

How to Harvest Elderberries

Harvesting elderberries is done in the mid-autumn season when they are ripe, namely sweet and sour in taste. Cut the bunches of berries from the branches. Juice the berries three to four hours after picking maximum, or keep them in the fridge for a maximum of 24-48 hours before processing. Fresh elderberries are used to make elderberry juice, tincture, and syrup while dried elderberries are used to make elderberry powder.

How to Make Elderberry Tincture

To prepare the elderberry tincture recipe, you need fresh elderberries and double refined alcohol of 90 degrees (180 proof). Separate the fruits from the bunches, wash them well, and rinse with water. Pad them with an absorbent paper napkin. Blend the elderberries into a paste. If you don’t have a blender, you can use a fork to mash the elderberries. Strain the obtained paste through a double cheesecloth into a glass jar. Ideally, squeeze the elderberry paste by hand so as to extract as much juice as possible.

Pour the same amount of alcohol over the elderberry juice into the jar (1 to 1 ratio). Seal the jar with a lid, store it in a dark place, and leave the elderberry tincture to soak for a full month. After this time, strain the tincture and store it in small, dark bottles. Keep the elderberry tincture bottles in a dark and cool place. If stored and kept in optimal conditions, the elderberry tincture can last up to 2 years.

How to Use Elderberry Tincture at Home – 5 Remedies

  1. Herpes – take a spoonful of elderberry tincture, diluted in half a glass of water, every hour, for a total of 3-4 times/day at the first symptoms of a herpetic eruption (slight fever, stinging, or itching). You can continue for a minimum of one week. Some active principles in elderberries annihilate the enzyme mechanism through which the herpetic viruses enter healthy cells, thus stopping the disease or speeding up healing. It works the same in the case of infection with the dreaded HIV virus.
  2. Psoriasis, skin allergy, scleroderma, skin conditions resistant to classical treatments – especially in the months of October-November, when many skin conditions, such as psoriasis or scleroderma, tend to recur or worsen, we recommend following a cure with elderberry juice or elderberry tincture. The dosage is 1-2 teaspoons of elderberry juice or 3-4 teaspoons of elderberry tincture daily, for at least four weeks.
  3. Adjuvant in the treatment of HIV infection – long-term treatments are carried out with elderberry tincture – 2-4 tablespoons a day, on an empty stomach, over the course of 45 days – pause for a week and resume.
  4. Adjuvant in the treatment of malignant and benign tumors – taking 2 tablespoons of elderberry tincture per day for 30 days has surprisingly powerful effects, by activating natural immunity, an extremely important element in the treatment of these ailments.
  5. Constipation, chronic constipation, putrefactive colitis – 1 to 3 tablespoons of elderberry tincture, diluted in a cup of water, in the morning, before meals for four weeks – pause for 5-7 days and resume if necessary.

Elderberry Tincture Side Effects

Elderberries are very powerful as a remedy, but like any medicine ingested in too high doses, they can cause unpleasant side effects such as vomiting, heartburn, throat inflammation, and breathing difficulties. The dangerous doses are 200 grams of fresh elderberries or elderberry juice and 300 grams of elderberry tincture per day.

Since it has a strong laxative and purgative effect, elderberry tincture will be administered with caution in large doses (more than 2 tablespoons per day), so as not to speed up the intestinal transit too much. Excepting the cases in which you want to use elderberry tincture for rapid weight loss or constipation, we recommend taking one or two teaspoons of lady’s mantle powder (Alchemilla vulgaris) or oak bark powder (Quercus sp.) a day alongside, to keep intestinal transit under control.

The preparations obtained from fresh elderberries, especially the tincture, and juice, are not recommended in cases of acute and chronic diarrhea, as well as in the case of fermentation colitis. People who have a sensitive colon or frequently suffer from bloating should take certain spices with carminative and anti-inflammatory roles (fennel seeds, cumin seeds, basil, and mint) along with elderberry remedies.
