Elderberry and Elderflower Lemon Ginger tea

IMG_0514

Elderberry and Elderflower are traditionally used for fighting colds and flu by boosting the immune system. Brew a batch of this delicious hot drink at the first sign. I usually take it three times a day to start off and then once a day after a few days.  Brew a large batch and keep it in the refrigerator to heat up by the cup. You can find elderberries and flowers at your local health food store.

Did I mention that Harry Potter’s most powerful wand was made from the elderberry tree?
