I created this elixir as a supporter for both the immune system and respiratory system.
Elderflowers are known to have distinctive immune-boosting properties. They are used to aid with swollen sinuses, seasonal flu, colds, swine flu, diabetes, & bronchitis. The flowers also help to alleviate allergies. Elderflowers contain anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and antiseptic properties.
Ginger helps to combat inflammation and keep your immune system healthy. The menthol in peppermint works as a decongestant, shrinking swollen membranes in the nose and making it easier to breathe, and also helps loosen mucus that has collected in the lungs. Rosemary is a rich source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds, which are thought to help boost the immune system and improve blood circulation. Goldenrod is an herb traditionally used for seasonal allergies and sinus congestion because of its ability to stimulate the respiratory system due to its astringent properties. Yarrow is a diaphoretic herb that has been used for relief of sore throats.
Adding in the natural health benefits of both honey and ACV makes this a staple in my medicine cabinet!
