What’s in the Herbal Share CSA Box


COST OF BASIC SHARE – $75.00                                                                                                    optional add-ons available

ELDERBERRY SYRUP – 6 oz.                                                                                                                      Ingredients: organic Elderberries, Raw Honey, organic Cinnamon, organic Ginger root, organic Star anise, organic Cloves and a bit of brandy.                                                                                                                  Flu viruses invade our cells by puncturing the cell walls with little spikes that break the cell walls down.  They cannot replicate themselves but must use the DNA in our cells to reproduce. Elderberry breaks down these spikes preventing them from penetrating our cell walls as well as stimulating our immune system.  Research has shown that Elderberries protect us from more viruses than the flu shot without the nasty side effects as well as shortening the length of time a person is ill.  Use this as a preventative and also at the very earliest sign of a respiratory illness to nip it in the bud.

WINTER WARMING ELIXIR (a.k.a. fire cider) – 10 oz.                                                        Ingredients: organic Apple Cider Vinegar with the ‘Mother’, organic Thyme, Rosemary, Horseradish and Burdock from our farm, organic Turmeric and Ginger root, organic garlic, hot peppers and onions from local Blackbrook farm.

WINTER WELLNESS PLANT EXTRACT – 2 oz.                                                                                    Ingredients: organic Elderberries, organic Echinacea and Thyme from our farm, locally wild harvested Boneset and alcohol.
The synergy of these four herbs works wonders to stop winter illness if caught in time and to speed healing if you do get sick.  Elderberry breaks down the spikey arms on flu viruses preventing them from penetrating our cell walls as well as stimulating our immune system.  Thyme, like Ederberry is also very anti-viral as well as anti-microbial, benefitting both upper and lower respiratory infections. Boneset is an old-timey herb that most folk’s have not heard of.  It is an immune stimulant just like Echinacea but produces 4X more white blood cells than Echinacea to help fight off infection.  It’s the best remedy for those aches, pains, fevers and chills associated with the flu.
