Elderberry is used as a herbal medicine, primarily to treat colds and flu. The flower’s essence contains valuable ingredients and has a refreshing and soothing effect on irritations and inflammations. It is used to prevent hoarseness and a dry mouth.
Elderberry is considered one of Europe’s oldest medicinal plants. As early as in ancient Greece, the berries and flowers were being used by Hippocrates to treat various ailments. Thanks to Father Kneipp, who appreciated the variety of uses of the elderberry, and Hildegard of Bingen, who recommended a drink made from elderberry for its sweat-inducing effect, the plant is still firmly established as a therapeutic agent in today’s folk medicine. The (black) elder bush can grow up to 11m high. The white and spicy-scented elderflower begins to blossom towards the end of May. The black berries ripen during late summer and, although poisonous in their raw state, they can be made into juice and syrup. Both the flowers and the berries can be used to make essences and tea.
To make Grether’s Pastilles Elderflower, sun-ripened flowers are picked and carefully selected from local elderberry trees. A syrup obtained in a complex process gives the pastilles their pleasant floral note and special aroma.
