This month Mountain Rose Herbs is having a 20% off sale on elderflower. This is the perfect time of year to buy it. Elder flowers have many benefits; two of them being a great fever reducer and immune system builder.
A tea can be made with the flowers, taking 2 teaspoons of flowers and pouring 8 ounces of hot water over them. Allow this to sit for 15-20 minutes, then sip the tea over the next hour or two. This tea can be a bit strong, so I recommend adding some raw honey to it. Dosing varies depending on where you read, but I would recommend 3-4 cups a day for treating an acute symptoms such as a fever (but do not continue this dosing for more than a few days). For building the immune system, I would drink 1 cup every few days. These doses are for adults.
