Elderflower Sambucus Nigra
The Elder tree bestows upon us gift after gift. We collect ours in Bulgaria.
Every spring the wild harvesters go to the forest and gather elderflowers. It's always a day of celebration.
Such is their power that the Elder trees have always been honoured by European culture as a source of strength. The blossoms of the elderflower have long been prized for boosting seasonal health with the 18th century physician Herman Boerhaave always raising his hat when he passed by an elderflower tree.
