An herbal syrup is essentially a strong tea mixed with honey. It can be used in a number of ways including in tea, tonic water, salad dressing, cocktails or mocktails, kombucha, or taken on its own.
Ingredients (all organic or sustainably grown/produced): RO Water, Honey, Elderberries, Hawthorn Berries, Cinnamon Stick, Ginger, Rosehips, Orange Peel, Tulsi, Vanilla Extract, Nutmeg
The main ingredients in this syrup are Elderberries and Hawthorn Berries.
Elderberries are a very common berry used in syrups for immune health, especially around cold and flu season. You'll even see elderberry syrup sold as a common OTC remedy at alternative health stores and groceries. They're alterative, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antiviral, and highly nutritive.
Hawthorn berries may be one of the most well known heart medicines. I love this plant, it has cute little red berries and it's in the rose family, so it also looks so dainty and sweet with its little white flowers in the spring. It's an adaptogen and also antioxidant-filled medicine. For anyone with heart ailments or irregularities, this may be a great medicine to use.
Ways to use syrups:
Use a spoonful or two in carbonated water for a homemade soda.
Use on top of yogurt, oatmeal, pancakes, ice cream, and other foods you'd normally put honey or maple syrup on.
Use in cocktails or mocktails. The berry flavor lends itself well to a number of drinks.
Get creative with it! Or you may simply take a spoonful a day for health which is what I do. Enjoy! :)
