The flu has struck our home. LazyN Man has influenza A. I am making some Elderberry Syrup to help him out. He already is using my Flu Bomb rollerball. Chest congestion is getting worse.
Here is the recipe:
Boil then simmer 30 minutes-
¼ cup dried elderberries
1 cup water
Strain berries in cheesecloth, squeezing berries gently, and return juice to pan. Do not return to heat.
Add and stir in:
½ cup honey
2 drops of a Protective Blend essential oil
Pour into jar.
Dosage: As a preventative, 1 TBS per day for an adult and 1 tsp per day for a child.
When feeling sick, 1 TBS per hour for an adult, 1 tsp per hour for a child.
