I'm curious, during the flu season do you take medicine or do you try natural remedies instead? How about immunity boosters? This year, Balazs and I are going for natural solutions. So in hopes to boost our immune system, we started having a spoonful of homemade elderberry syrup each day for the past two weeks. I got the idea from Erin who swears by it and to our surprise, it's actually pretty tasty!
Plus, it feels good to help our body prepare for the germs in a natural type of way instead of later trying to fight them with heavy medications. Best part of all: it’s incredibly easy to make. You just need to get a bag of dried elderberries from an organic herb shop, a glass bottle, raw honey, a cinnamon stick, cloves and water. That is it. Here is the full how to.
Psst: Elderberry is full in antioxidants, potassium, beta carotene, calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin C. What are your favourite immunity boosters during the flu season? xo
P.S: Plus, this sleep salve and this little autumn booster with special ingredient.
P.P.S: Superfood mocktail.
