Honey Buz natural ingredients- Elderberry for Hair and Skin care

Honey Buz all natural - Elderberry for Skin and Hair care  

Elderberry – the medicine chest of Thanksgiving

 All around us in the Hudson Valley and Northern NJ woodlands, the Elderberry shrub thrives. 

As we approach Thanksgiving – we remember to give thanks for what we learned from Native Indians and the early settlers, including natural remedies that were cultivated healing and wellness.

Happy Thanksgiving to all - The Elderberry (also known as Sambucus nigra) is one of the most common fruit-bearing shrubs of North America. To the Indians and American settlers, it was considered "the medicine chest of the common people.

Honey Buz uses Elderberry natural ingredients

Recent excavations in New England shows that colonists, regardless of whether they followed a recipe or medical advice, certainly consumed elderberries. Sandy Helsel wrote in The Herb Society of America’s Essential Guide to Elderberry, “We assume that the colonists used these recipes and ate elderberries, but archaeological excavations of a Newport, RI privy turned up real evidence – 2,508 elderberry seeds were found therein!” (1)

The history of the Elderberry goes back even further to ancient Egyptian times. It was discovered that applying elderberry flowers improved the complexion and healed burns. Over the years all parts of the elder have long enjoyed a strong medicinal reputation on their own merits.

Sambucus nigra fruit or Elderberry is a beneficial superfruit. It is rich in phytonutrients that have both antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

Distilled elderflower water softens, tone and restores the skin. Elder flower infusion cleanses the skin, lightens freckles, and soothes sunburn. Its bioflavonoids promote circulation and strengthen the capillaries. (2)
