OVERVIEW
European elder is a plant native to Europe, Northern Africa, and Western-and Central Asia. Its flowers and berries have a long history of use in traditional European medicine. Elder berries have also been used for making preserves, wines, winter cordials, and for adding flavor and color to other wines.

PARTS USED
Most commonly the flowers or berries. Dried fruits are less bitter than fresh.

The branches and leaves are poisonous. The small stem which is sometimes left on the berry is safe.

TYPICAL PREPARATIONS
Teas, tinctures, encapsulations, syrups, wine, cordials, and even ketchup, often combined with propolis or echinacea.

PRECAUTIONS
