Today I took advantage of a beautiful morning for a walk along the nearby river and forest. If we walk with our eyes open, we notice many things that nature offers us. Among them is also the elderberry which I picked today.
Elderberry grows in shrubs that reach up to ten meters high. Their flowers are yellowish-white and have a very characteristic scent, which is also extremely intense. It usually grows along clearings or at the edge of a forest.
Elderberry has many healing properties, which is why in the past it was also called a healing box for peasant people. Among other things, elderberry helps with diabetes, hay fever, stimulates sweating, lowers fever and colds, cleanses the blood …
I usually use it for tea.
