Its flowers and berries have a long history of medicinal usage. Elderberries have long been used for their antioxidants to boost the immune system and reduce inflammation. Historically, Native Americans used it to treat infections, while the ancient Egyptians used it to improve skin conditions. Today, many people use elderberry to recover quickly from a cold or flu. Others take it daily as a preventative measure against these illnesses. Elderberries also have a deep bluish purple color which makes a beautiful natural dye.
