Elderberry and Cold Season! #Health

Thank you to Over The Moon Herbals for providing us with both pre-made and elderberry syrup making kits. All opinions are our own. Check out our original post over at Mommy Makes Time

When you work with small children you get sick. It’s a reality of tiny hands in their mouths, an inability to cover tiny mouths and the need for sick snuggles. I’ve always accepted that cold season would be rough and as a small business owner and mom, there are no sick days. Last year I was was on a mission to find a natural way to boost my immunity and hopefully fend off the germs when I came across elderberries.

Elderberries have a long history as a folk cure for a variety of ailments. While some uses haven’t been proven yet, elderberries in the form of elderberry syrup have been shown to boost immunity, decrease mucous production during colds and fight the flu. Elderberries are a rich source of vitamins A and C which we all know helps boost your immune system. According to a study in the Journal of International Medical Research, patients given elderberry syrup recovered an average of 4 days faster from the flu than those not taking the supplement. Elderberries have even been shown in the labs to help prevent swine and avian flu strains.

Last year I made my own Elderberry Syrup with the help of a friend from Over The Moon Herbals. As an herbalist she was able to give me guidance in making my own batch of syrup. It was a lot simpler than I imagined and my family got to benefit all season long. Looking to make your own syrup? It’s really not hard, especially with an elderberry syrup kit from Over The Moon Herbals. The kit contains everything you need to make a batch of elderberry syrup. The directions are simple and Over The Moon Herbals has taken the time and care to craft the kit with all organic ingredients. This is the perfect kit if you want to make your own syrup but don’t want to buy a bunch of additional herbs you may not use.

If you’re looking to try this syrup without having to make your own, I recommend the shop at Over The Moon Herbals for their pre-made syrup! All the immune system boosting benefits without having to make it yourself. I’ve just started taking this syrup and my cold symptoms are much less severe then they usually are (and I’ve had lots of colds to compare).

When this cold passes I plan on taking the recommended dose daily to hopefully ward off those extremely contagious and lovingly passed kiddo germs. If you’re looking for other natural wellness products Over The Moon Herbals is the place to go. Their online communities are amazing with answering questions and providing support. Greatest part? You are shopping small, mom-made products (which is always my favorite part). What do you think of elderberry syrup?

WARNING WARNING WARNING – NEW AMAZON SCAM!

Please be aware there is a new Amazon scam going around – warn everyone you know.  Scammers are sending out authentic looking emails that look like they are from Amazon stating that a recent order YOU PLACED could not be filled.  They ask for all your personal information including your credit card info – please do not fall for this scam.  Once they have your credit card info they will have a ball shopping at your expense.

Apparently the email has a “click here” link which will lead you back to another page that looks like an authentic Amazon page.  DO NOT fall for this scam.

If you are in doubt you can do one of two things.  Get out of the email and long into your actual Amazon account to see if any of your recent orders were cancelled it will say so or the second thing you can do to check is to call Amazon Customer Service at 1-888-280-4331.

Please tell everyone you know not to fall victim to this scam!
