Your Questions Answered with a Touch of Magic!


Absolutely! 🐻 We bearly let anyone else touch our elderberry syrup. 👐 We handcraft, manufacture, formulate, distribute, and design every single drop of our elderberry products from scratch. We've spent countless hours and done extensive research to create our unique elderberry syrup recipe. 🧪 Nick, my amazing husband, was our clinical trial bear—he went cold turkey on all his pain medication and guided me on adjusting the potency of our syrup by testing it himself. By day 3, he felt relief from his pain! 🐻‍❄️ Isn’t that paw-some?

We didn’t have the funds to send our product to a lab or hire a chemist, so we did it all ourselves with research, prayer, faith, and trust. 🙏 Every bottle is cooked by hand in fresh batches every week. We have no employees—just us! 🧑‍🍳👩‍🍳 We hand-pour using a funnel and strainer into each bottle. We even design our own branding and labels, physically go to get them printed, and then Nick peels and applies each label by hand. 🏷️ We seal every bottle by hand too!

So, when you ask if we make our syrup, the answer is a big bear-y YES. 🐻 We don’t mass-produce or use machines—everything is handcrafted with love and care. 🫶 Bear with us, and you'll see the amount of work and dedication in every bottle!


Oh, it all started back in 2019 when I dove headfirst into the wild world of natural health. 🌿 I was hunting for something truly special, but the elderberry syrups in health food stores? They were bearly acceptable! 🐻 Expensive, filled with artificial nasties like alcohols, stabilizers, and all that synthetic sugar—I couldn’t bear to buy them.

So, I tried to whip up my own potion at home, searching the vast forest of Google for recipes. But let me tell you, that first batch tasted so awful, I almost had to paws everything right there! 🐾 And don’t get me started on the "raw" honey versions—not vegan or baby-bear friendly. Totally un-bearable!

Amidst this, my mom’s passing and my husband’s health struggles were the real catalysts. They pushed me to concoct something not just good, but bear-tacular! 🌟 Something without the honey, sugar, or any need for preservatives, and still taste like magic. After much trial and error, I perfected a syrup that's just right—safe for cubs and elder-bears alike, potent enough for pain relief, and so tasty you might just catch yourself growling for more!

Creating this elderberry syrup wasn’t just about starting a business—it was about crafting a legacy as sweet and strong as bear hugs. Each bottle is a promise to deliver a healthful, delicious syrup that’s just paw-fect! 🐻💖 Now, I’m just here, living the dream, making the best, most magical elderberry syrup I can, and loving every minute of it!


Elderberry is a small, dark purple fruit from the Sambucus tree, often recognized for its medicinal properties. It's not just a pretty berry; it's a little powerhouse of nutrients and health benefits! Here's the lowdown on what makes elderberries so special:

  1. Immune System Boost: One of the most celebrated benefits of elderberry is its ability to support the immune system. These berries are packed with vitamins and antioxidants, particularly vitamin C, which is a big player in immune defense.
  2. Cold and Flu Relief: Elderberry is often used as a natural remedy for colds and flu. Studies have shown that elderberry extract can reduce the duration and severity of these illnesses. So, it's like nature's own cold-fighting ninja!
  3. Rich in Antioxidants: These berries are a treasure trove of antioxidants, such as flavonoids and anthocyanins. Antioxidants are like your body’s personal bodyguards, protecting your cells from damage caused by free radicals.
  4. Anti-inflammatory Properties: Elderberry has anti-inflammatory effects, which can help reduce pain and swelling. This is especially helpful for those dealing with conditions like arthritis or chronic pain.
  5. Heart Health: Some research suggests that elderberries can have a positive effect on heart and cardiovascular health. They may help reduce cholesterol, improve blood sugar levels, and lower blood pressure.
  6. Mental Health Benefits: The antioxidants in elderberries might also support brain health. They can help combat oxidative stress, which is linked to mental decline and conditions like Alzheimer's disease.
  7. Skin Health: Thanks to their high levels of vitamins and antioxidants, elderberries can also contribute to healthy, glowing skin. They might help fight skin conditions and promote a youthful complexion.

It's important to note that most of these benefits are best harnessed through elderberry supplements, like syrups or extracts, rather than eating the raw berries, which can be toxic if not properly prepared. As with any supplement, it's always a good idea to chat with a healthcare professional before diving in, especially if you have underlying health conditions or are taking other medications.

So, elderberries are not just a treat for the taste buds but a boost of magic for overall health. Nature really knows its stuff, right? 🌿💪🍇


No, we do not. We don't even source our elderberries in Florida. We have a trusted farmer who is absolutely incredible and takes care of that for us.


What sets our elderberry totally apart from other brands in the market is a combination of quality, potency, transparency, and affordability. We take great pride in offering you guys an amazing hand-crafted local products with the purest ingredients! We really want you to benefit from our product and we can't wait for you to experience the difference!


Absolutely! It's like a superhero sidekick for your little ones.

For the cubs aged 6-11, it's a spoonful of fun with 1-2 teaspoons. For the adorable elderbabies trotting around at ages 3-5, just 1 teaspoon will do the trick. And for the teeny-tiny superheroes from 6 months to 2 years, a tiny 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon is just right.

Remember, though every cub needs a mama bear– so make sure to chat with your child's pediatrician before introducing this elderberry magic.

And hey, here's a fun fact: our wild boy is a toddler and he takes 1/2 a teaspoon and absolutely loves it! And my kid is gross and filled with cooties but he has NEVER BEEN SICK. So in the summer time after winter he gets a break and then when back to school rolls around he's back to taking it everyday and that's what works for us!


You can enjoy the goodness of taking our elderberry on its own or you can get creative by incorporating it into various drinks, teas, smoothies, lemonade, and cocktails. Here are some magical ways to use our elderberry:

1. Straight from the Spoon: Taking it straight from the spoon is a very simple and convenient option to enjoy its immune-boosting properties. We understand that our elderberry is lip smacking delish and I'm so happy ya'll love the flavor of our elderberry. We do however, want to advise against literally consuming the entire bottle of elderberry in one sitting or ingesting it in large amounts at once. I mean do what you want but Our elderberry is not juice designed to drink straight up. It's highly potent with very powerful medicinal properties added to it.

(i.e. We have lots of customers who are supplementing our elderberry syrup for anti-inflammatory purposes. Just to give a general idea of how strong our product is.)

2. Put it in your tea! Hot or cold. Try an elderberry Arnold Palmer. Half tea, half lemonade and a splash of elderberry over ice...sooo good!!

3. Make a gut happy smoothie! I mix mine with 2 scoops of Ningxia® greens, 2 oz of Ningxia Red, 2 oz of our elderberry, lots of ice, coconut water, and throw in a fresh banana with strawberries and i have never felt so nourished, vibrant and nourished! It has such a blend of flavors and a boost of antioxidants!

5. Try our elderberry syrup with club soda and a splash of lime.

*6. Freshly Squeezed Lemonade: Mix our elderberry into some freshly squeezed lemonade and make it with coconut sugar for a tangy and revitalizing beverage. this is literally my favorite thing to make

And don't forget, elderberry is not just for adults! The suggested dosages are as follows:

For Adults and Children (12 years old and up):

- General Immune Support: Take a tablespoon of elderberry once a day or as needed.

- Inflammation Support: Consume a shot (1 ounce) twice a day one shot in the morning and one at night.

For Young Children:

- Administer a teaspoon of elderberry for general immune support. Whether you take it on its own or get creative with different drinks and recipes, elderberry offers a delicious and nourishing way to support your immune system and overall well-being!

Picture this: You're in a game show called "Elderberry Bonanza," and the big question is, "How much elderberry does your family tree need?" Here's the winning cheat sheet:

  • Solo superhero (One Adult): Grab a 16 oz bottle. It's like your personal berry shield!

Remember, always chat with your wizard (aka physician) before brewing up this elderberry magic. Some of our berry enthusiasts take it all year-round for daily immune spellcasting, while others save it for battling the cold dragons.

For general immune enchantments, a daily sip of elderberry works, or thrice a day for extra magic. During a battle with the sniffle beast: Adults, take 1 tablespoon every 2-3 hours; little warriors, 1-2 teaspoons.

And here's the grand finale: our elderberry extract has a 1-year shelf life unopened, and post-opening, it's like a half-year potion in the fridge. So, keep sipping and stay berry-strong! 🌟


Disclaimer: If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is essential to consult with your healthcare provider before taking any herbal supplements, including elderberry.

While our elderberry is generally considered safe for most adults, children, and even young infants, specific medical conditions and individual circumstances may require personalized advice.

During pregnancy and lactation, it's crucial to ensure the safety and well-being of both the mama and baby. Some healthcare providers may recommend avoiding certain herbal supplements during pregnancy or breastfeeding due to limited research on their effects in these conditions.

Your healthcare provider will be able to assess your medical history, consider any potential interactions with other medications you might be taking, and provide personalized guidance on whether elderberry supplementation is appropriate for you.

Remember, it's always better to be cautious and seek professional advice to make informed decisions about your health during these important life stages. Now that I've disclosed that important disclaimer I personally took my elderberry during my pregnancy for immune support and also while I was nursing with approval from my midwife. As mentioned already every circumstance is different and approval was based on my lab work, PMH (past medical history), and health of my unborn baby.

  2. As the seasons change, especially into fall and winter months, elderberry can be a great addition to your daily routine taking it daily as a preventative. 🛡️ We have so many of our customers report back to us that when taken daily everyone around them gets sick except for them! Same goes for giving it to the kids and babies too! (i.e our regular sitter caught the flu and the entire house was super duper sick, but since we give our elderberry to our little one on the regular basis he was fine!)

Oh honey (pun intended) I honestly believe in simplicity. My goal was to formulate ONE amazing product that everyone can use—infants, vegans, diabetics, kids, adults, and the wise elders.

Nah, it's actually inherently impossible to "overdose" on elderberry syrup. While elderberry syrup is packed with all those magical health benefits, it's like any good thing – moderation is key. Too much of it can give you a bit of a tummy ache or some digestive drama. So, let's keep it to the recommended doses and save the epic transformations for fairy tales, shall we?
