Photo taken last fall as I was brewing this on my windowsill.
I was sick this month but I'm on the mend now thanks to sick soup, lots of love, rest, garlic oil and elderberry tea.
To one cup of hot water or basic herbal tea like peppermint, add a couple spoons of elderberry juice concentrate, a couple spoons of echinacea tincture and 1/2- 1 tsp of powdered slippery elm bark (if your throat is feeling raw).
This particular brew is lacking slippery elm or you'd see "floaties" in the cup.
I'm limiting myself to 3 sentence posts till the end of February but feel free to ask questions or add your own remedies in comments.
