For centuries, Elder has been the gateway tender for more than just mythology. Modern science has proven what herbalists have known all along; elderberry and elderflower help build immunity and protect our cells against infection and viral attack.

Come with us on this look into elder’s remarkable healing skills in this edition of The Practical Herbalist’s Herbal Folio series. We’ll look deeper into elder’s medicinal properties, offering some understanding of how this humble shrub protects boundaries on the cellular level, as well as exploring other uses for elder’s energy.

Discover uses for elder that extend beyond the purely medicinal, like sipping elderberry cordial or finding your inner beauty with elderflower flower essence. We’ll touch on the history and magic of elder, cover how you can use elderberry and elderflower to care for your animal companions, and offer a few recipes to get you started before covering the cautions that relate to using this shrubby tree.
