Nature's Medicine Chest
Elderberries have been recommended for their health benefits throughout history.
Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, called elderberries “Nature’s Medicine Chest for the common people,” and from that point forward, it is noted in herbals and pharmacopia.
Sambucus canadensis, the Canada elderberry, or
common elderberry, is a species of elderberry
native to a large area of North America east of the
Rocky Mountains, and south through eastern
Mexico and Central America to Panama. It grows
in a variety of conditions including both wet and dry soils, primarily in sunny locations.
It is a deciduous suckering shrub growing to 3 m or more tall. The leaves are arranged in opposite pairs, pinnate with five to nine leaflets, the leaflets around 10 cm long and 5 cm broad. In summer, it bears large (20–30 cm diameter) corymbs of white
flowers above the foliage, the individual flowers 5–6 mm diameter, with five petals.
The fruit (known as an elderberry) is a dark purple to black berry 3–5 mm diameter, produced in drooping clusters in the fall.
The flower (known as an elderflower) is edible, as well as the ripe berries. Uses for the fruit include medicinal concentrated pure natural extract purposes based on their medicinal virtues: The bark, leaves, flowers and berries (high in Vitamin C-supports immune function) all have medicinal properties so they not only have proved their usefulness over thousands of years, but are a valuable remedy in modern herbal medicine as well, wine, jelly and dye. Leaves and inner bark can be used as an insecticide and a dye. Stems can be hollowed out and used for spouts, musical instruments, and toys.
