Nature’s Remedies

…filled with local, raw honey

We love elderberry syrup! It’s a natural remedy that counteracts the flu virus! It’s filled with local, raw honey that also helps to aliviate allergies from our local Amherst/Lynchburg area. Here’s what Dr. Axe has to say about elderberry syrup:
“Health benefits of the elder plant include naturally improving colds, the flu, sinus issues, nerve pain, inflammation, chronic fatigue, allergies, constipation and even cancer.
When used within the first 48 hours of onset of symptoms, the extract has actually been found to reduce the duration of the flu with symptoms being relieved on an average of four days earlier.”

I craft this in our home kitchen, processing it with love, long-hard hours, and care. Then, as I stand at the register visiting with our customers, at Anderson’s, I hear testimonies. Elementary teachers tell me how they haven’t had the flu, as in previous years. Another testimony is a mother who started giving it to her elementary-age daughter and she hadn’t been sick in 5 months. Before Elderberry Syrup, she was constantly sick. It’s amazing how well it works.


Another great local product we advocate is the Jewelweed Lotion made by Rustic Remedies in Amherst. Jewelweed dries up poison ivy and poison oak and helps relieve the itching.

What is so interesting to me, is the fact that many times you will see that Jewelweed grows right beside Poison Ivy, in the woods. Isn’t that fascinating? It’s another one of God’s antidotes!

We are honored to provide both of these items for you at Anderson’s, in Madison Heights!
