    First off, the shipping was amazingly fast! I ordered 4 of the larger size bottles and they were each carefully bubble wrapped, but due to the mishandling by the USPS, 2 of the four were broken. I immediately sent a message to Stephanie regarding this issue. Within 1/2 hour I received a response with her saying she would send me 2 replacement bottles. I received them today!. In the meantime, I have been using this syrup for the past week and it is not only delicious, I swear it staved off a cold I was beginning to feel come on. I simply took 1 Tbls at night and one in the morning, and again at night, and the beginnings of the cold just vanished. I have high hopes that this is the missing key for good health during cold and flu season. I am very impressed with the product and the customer service I have received .

Immune boosting elderberry syrup made with local honey and organic ingredients.

The Sweet's team is a family committed to helping you achieve better health through delicious, organic products delivered with honesty and exceptional customer satisfaction.

As part of our journey toward proactive wellness, I made elderberry syrup for my family using local honey and the best ingredients available. We quickly discovered that the syrup not only eliminated our need for over-the-counter cold medicines when we were sick, it also helped us stay healthy. Even our picky eater loved it! I wondered if others seeking alternative approaches to health and wellbeing would be interested in using it if they didn't have to make it. What started as a single Facebook post has become, through word-of-mouth and glowing testimonials, soaring demand for my syrup that keeps me busy and so, so happy. Now the syrup is called Sweet’s which is my daughter’s nickname. Today we are handcrafting Sweet's Syrup professionally and it is flying off the shelves in doctors' offices, health food retailers, and exercise establishments (not to mention our busy website).

I respect the trust my customers place in me and my product and I'm committed to maintaining that trust. Your family's health is important to me, and I can't wait to hear how Sweet's Syrup helps you!

How much and how often should I take Sweet's Syrup?

Suggested serving is 1 teaspoon for children and 1 tablespoon for adults. Our family takes one serving daily during flu season to boost our immunity and prevent illness. If you are sick or feel something coming on, take a dose every 3 hours to help knock it out. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, I recommend starting a daily dose a month before your trigger season begins.

How long does Sweet's Syrup last while refrigerated?

Sweet's Syrup must be refrigerated and will be good for 5 months.

Is Sweet's Syrup safe to take while pregnant or nursing?

Ask your Obstetrician about Sweet’s, since it does contain unpasteurized honey. We also offer bottles of "ElderBaby" Sweet’s Syrup made with organic coconut nectar instead of honey.

Elderberry Syrup is approved by numerous Lactation Consultants. However, I always recommend consulting your physician before adding any new herbal remedies.

What age can children take Sweet's Syrup?

One of the ingredients is unpasteurized honey, which is not safe for infants because of botulism risk. Our Pediatrician approved use starting at age 12 months.

Any tips for picky eaters?

I consider myself a picky eater EXPERT.

From the start, I discourage referring to Sweet’s as medicine of any sort. Call it magic syrup, num-num, honey juice… or even Sweet’s Syrup! One family named it “the good stuff”!

For smaller toddlers, try a medicine syringe. It fits perfectly into the pint-size Sweet’s bottle. For older toddlers, make Sweet’s special and different by using a fun shot glass!

Sweet’s tastes delicious mixed into yogurt, oatmeal or a smoothie. It also pairs well with whiskey, for picky eaters of the adult variety.

Will Sweet's Syrup still benefit me if I do not live in Charlotte, NC?

If you are looking for an immune boost or natural remedy for colds, coughs and the flu then yes, Sweet's Syrup can help! If you’re looking for allergy relief, it’s important to use a syrup containing honey made in your area. Sweet’s uses honey with pollen spores collected by bees from North Carolina foliage, so it helps build immunity against those specific trees and plants.

I live in North Carolina or South Carolina. Where can I buy Sweet's Syrup locally?
