As we discussed in the live call there are a couple of things we can do right now to prepare us in walking towards that Feb 18th date of Chiron shifting into Aries.
Elderberry is known as a superfood because it is packed with antioxidants and phytochemicals. Elderberry syrup is great to have on hand for colds, flu and overall immune system support.
Here is my recipe for elderberry syrup.
1 cup dried organic elderberries
2 cinnamon sticks
2 tbsp black pepper (* has been researched to help increase bioavability/ absorption of nutrients)
4 tbsp dried organic echinacea
1/2 cup local honey
2 tsp dried mushroom complex (reishi and maitake)
Cover with 4 cups water and let boil down.
We use our left over elderberries in smoothies and pancakes. I strongly suggest organic for these ingredients however I also side with just getting it in is better than nothing.
Also I tend to add therapeutic grade essential oils into the final version to up the anty of supporting my immune system: cinnamon, thieves, and black pepper tend to always make the list.
All of the ingredients help increase immune function and have been researched for warding off flu and colds. If you are a research nut like me there are about 2,000 per reviewed studies on how elderberries aids the body.
There is plenty of homemade elderberry syrup to purchase on etsy (or you can ask me). For a quick fix here are a couple other members recommend
