Elder Berries, Witchy Herbs, Elder for Magick, Elder for Spells, Witch's Herb Elder Berries, Elder for the Fae


Elder is a lovely shrub/tree that is the source of first Elder Flowers, then Elder Berries. Both have been used historically for anti-viral herbs in teas and herbal cold remedies. Elder has been used by herbalists and kitchen witches for centuries as a staple for winter health. The flowers were used for children's preparations, since the flavor is less strong and astringent.


Elder berry is used in many cough, cold preparations, and also in anti-viral recipes. Elder has a long and illustrious history in magick, including the correspondences below.  Has historically been strongly associated with the Fae, and for this reason is lovely in offering bowls for the Fae.
