It all started with Belvoir Lemonade Elderflower Rose drink. I found this at my local grocery store. You are probably wondering what kind of grocery store would have something as specific as that. Admitting the grocery store is a bit upscale. This drink is incredible. I’ve brought this to family parties as an alternative for those who can’t or don’t drink.
Sometimes I go get it just because. Oh it’s so good!
I went to TJMaxx recently and found this elderflower syrup to add to your bubbly or wine in the left over Xmas stuff that didn’t sell. I bought a few for a later endeavor.
I’ve been a bit curious about other possible products. When googling elderflower I really didn’t have any expectations. To my surprise, there are loads of stuff you can get with elderflower in it. I may have to purchase some of the items. I’m sure not all of it could be great, but I’m willing to try some.
I’m into essential oils and looked up properties and benefits. To be honest, if it didn’t have any benefits I’d still keep buying the Lemonade drink. Just knowing I’m drinking something that has a flower essence in it makes me smile a bit. The name is a bit fairy and cute. It brings out the girly girl in me. I like it a lot.
Elder Flower is known to stimulate energies. It used as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. Uses range from colds and flu, sinus infections, and other respiratory issues.
I read it also has some antiviral properties and may help alleviate allergies and boost the immune system. I really didn’t know that prior to researching. That is great.
Here is what I found.
