Organic Elder Flowers
Elder Flowers, Sambucus nigra, were used by Egyptians to improved the complexion and heal burns. The elder, with its soothing and skin softening properties, has a long history of use dating back thousands of years. The anti-inflammatory properties of the flowers make them useful in salves as a treatment for burns, rashes, acne, cuts and other skin ailments. The flowers are mildly astringent and are used to clear, refine and brighten the complexion, help with age spots, calm irritations and soften and soothe dry skin and scalp. Elder flower tea is good for colds, coughs, rheumatism, and respiratory infections.
