I use elderberry syrup mixed with lemon and raw honey as a hot tea. My family drinks this daily to keep our immune systems in top shape. I give my LO a dab of the elderberry syrup on her tongue, and she really loves the taste. What are some of your family's remedies for the season?

Chicken soup is the ultimate healing comfort food!

Even better when I can add a shot of whiskey to it, but it works well solo or as a tea.
