Elderberry Syrup = Immune Support

 

What are Elderberries?

 

Elderberries are one of the best and most- used, go-to natural remedies in the winter months for the minor cold and flu. They are shown to be one of the highest in immune-boosting compounds that are shown to be especially supportive in beating the cold and flu more effectively. One of the best ways that we have found to use them is by making Elderberry Syrup.

 

According to Dr. Madeleine Mumcuoglu from Hadassah- Hebrew University in Israel found that elderberry disarms the enzyme viruses use to penetrate healthy cells in the lining of the nose and throat. When taken before infection, it prevents infection. Taken after infection, it prevents the spread of the virus through the respiratory tract. In a clinical trial, 20% of study subjects reported significant improvement within 24 hours, 70% by 48 hours, and 90% claim complete cure in three days. In contrast, subjects receiving the placebo required 6 days to recover.

fall-inspired DIYs and recipes we can make with our oils!

 

Just a quick disclaimer—I am not medical professionals, and am not making any

claims that these oils can treat, cure, or heal a disease.

 

With that being said, what are you most looking forward to this fall?!

 

THIEVES.

 

Thieves will always be one of your go-to for immune support!!

Thieves essential oil is a powerful combination of Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon,

Eucalyptus Radiata, and Rosemary essential oils for an aromatic blend that fills any

space with a rich, spicy aroma. Inspired by the legend of four 15th-century French thieves who

formulated a special aromatic combination composed of clove, rosemary, and other

botanicals used while robbing the dead and dying, Thieves is one of Young Living’s
