A day in the (sort of) herbal life. I'm no herbalist! But I can make an elderberry syrup and I know how to use it. It's a great immune system booster among many other benefits and it's one kids love. It's a bit pricy, but you can find berries in the wild in the Omaha area and make your own. Can you make an herbal tincture? You bet! It's so easy when you know how.
