“I believe in supporting our bodies through a more gentle, natural way. Once I had children, I began to learn more about how plants and foods work in a holistic way to strengthen our bodies and immune functioning, as opposed to simply suppressing symptoms. I think it is best to offer alternatives and let people discover what works best for them individually.”
My products are unlike any that you will find on big box shelves. I maintain a food vs. pharmaceutical quality that is tried and true for the past decade. We do not add any thickeners, alcohols, or artificial preservatives. We hand press every batch to maximize plant medicine potency. We sweeten with a (local) pure raw honey and cold-pack our syrups to maintain all of the beneficial healing enzymes. Our syrups contain not only the elderberries but also the elder flowers, hibiscus petals, rose hips, lemon and orange peels, and ginger (as opposed to a traditional recipe of cinnamon, ginger, and cloves). My goal was to make a syrup that kids and adults alike would look forward to each day.
Our main goal is to maintain the highest quality of ingredients and food medicine potency. We are a small company, offering hand-crafted and artisanal “food medicine.“ From my family to yours, with love, care and attention.
> Amy Parsons, founder, My Elderberry Fairy
My Elderberry Fairy offers small batch elderberry syrups, tea blends, DIY syrup kits, fire cider tonics and seasonal wellness products. My Elderberry Fairy sprouted wings from a belief and passion for trusting in Nature for nourishment, healing, and food as medicine. We believe in the power and wisdom of Nature to nourish not only our taste buds, but our whole selves.
Folk medicine has been around for millennia, exploiting first wild then cultivated plants to prevent or cure a myriad of illnesses. Black elder has been used for centuries in Europe, northern Africa, and some parts of Asia for such purposes as to keep the evil spirits away and to prevent or cure numerous ailments and health problems.
Early settlers brought some of this knowledge to America where a closely related plant, the American elder, could easily be found in the wild. Native Americans also have a tradition of using elderberry
for its healing properties and particularly to treat fever and rheumatism. While some of the reported effects lack adequate scientific validation, there are an increasing number of studies supporting important medicinal or therapeutic properties associated with American and black elders.
