Lea's Elderberry "Syrup" Recipe
As a Certified Herbalist (yes, I have that training, too!) elderberry is my #1 go-to for viruses & colds, as it has been shown to reduce symptoms and length of illness. Elderberries are the best things to have around during cold and flu season. Taking a teaspoon a day can ward off illness, and a tablespoon a day can help your body bounce back from illness more quickly. You can make your own very easily.

Replacing Medications with Essential Oils is Dangerous
Someone contacted me this evening asking if it was safe for her daughter (breastfeeding a 3-month-old) to take copaiba softgels instead of Z0l0ft. I was able to share with her how dangerous it is to replace medications (especially strong mental health ones) with essential oils.
PLEASE do not replace strong medications with essential oils!
PLEASE do not listen to people who sell you essential oils who tell you that you can.
You could rebound! You could feel worse!
This must be done under supervision by a medical professional (like your doctor, or a naturopath or someone who can monitor you).
Essential oils are amazing! But PLEASE use responsibly.
