Elder General Information
Elderberries also called Sambucus nigra can be very different in form and taste and can grow from bushy shrubs a few feet high to trees close to 50 feet in height. The Elder berry tree has aromatic clusters of star-shaped white flowers that vary from flat-topped bunches to globular arrays. The flowers mature to berry-like full fruits that can be blue, amber, and red to black and have very different tastes. The Black Elderberry is used in an extract form. Early Native American tribes used nature’s way and took the aged hollow stems as arrows or bored holes in them to fashion flutes. They also made a tea from Elderberry flowers for treating respiratory infections. They used the leaves and flowers in poultices and applied them to wounds; and used the bark as a laxative. The Elderberries were used to make beverages, pies, and preserves, but also they have been used to treat arthritis. Elderberry has diuretic, decongestant, laxative, anti-inflammatory properties.

Elder Uses & Scientific Evidence For
Some clinicians think that Elderberries are more effective at shortening colds and flu than Echinacea. Preliminary studies with a certain strain of epidemic flu have shown that Elderberry extract reduced recovery time by half. It also helps bring up phlegm associated with asthma, bronchitis, colds, flu and smoking. A hot infusion works well for treating respiratory infections, tonsillitis, and laryngitis. At the onset of a cold, fever, measles, rash or chickenpox, an infusion will stimulate circulation and cause sweating, cleansing the system of toxins. Externally, Elderberry flowers can soothe cuts and wounds, chilblains, skin eruptions, sunburn, and irritable skin. In traditional European medicine, the juice of this plant is used for treating sciatica and neuralgia. It is now being studied for its effectiveness against other viral infections, including HIV and herpes.
