Making your own elderberry syrup at home is surprisingly easy and it’ll save you a LOT of money.
Place the water, elderberries, ginger, and spices (but not oils) in the Instant Pot. Set on High Pressure for 9 minutes. It will take about 10 minutes to build up pressure and then take 9 minutes to cook. Once it’s finished, release the pressure. Then strain out the elderberries with a fine mesh strainer.
Add in the honey and essential oils and bottle it up! Store in the fridge. The essential oils will help to preserve it so it can last for one month or more. To save on the trouble, you could make several batches at once and freeze the extra.
Standard dose is ½ – 1 teaspoon for kids and ½ – 1 tablespoon for adults. If the flu does strike, take the normal dose every 2-3 hours instead of once a day until symptoms disappear.
