Elder Flowers (Sambucus nigra)Latin Name: Sambucus nigra
Common Names: Elder Flowers
Elder Flowers are produced by the Sambucus nigra shrub, found in Europe, Asia and Africa. Our Elder flowers supplier is in Bulgaria. Commonly, Sambucus nigra is known as Black Elder, European Elder, and Boor tree, with the "nigra" portion of the name as Latin for "black". The Elder Flowers emerge from the branches of the Sambucus nigra in the summer months, after which they drop and the berries of the plant are produced. The flowers on the shrub are formed in clusters which are small, tubular shaped, white in color and quite fragrant.
Our wholesale Elder Flowers come in both the cut and sifted as well as powder forms. Bulk Elder Flowers may be taken as a tea. The Flowers have been used historically as a blood cleanser and diuretic.
Herbs, including Elder products, when stored correctly, can remain fresh for up to one to two years. Quality control of each aspect of our herbs in bulk, as they are grown, purchased, processed and shipped to you, are monitored so that you can be sure of receiving the highest quality.
Delicious yet Weird
At first when I opened the package they smelled overpoweringly like horrible rotten licorice. But after a few seconds the smell dissipated and it smelled sweeter when it wasn't as strong. The smell was then horrible again when I poured hot water over them: my boyfriend said it smelled like old socks and sweat and road kill.
But when I was done with the jelly and the smell gone the taste was absolutely wonderful!!!
I've never tasted anything like it. It's not super "floral" either. Its beautiful. My boyfriend then said that it felt like his tongue walked through a beautiful flower garden! It's definitely a new favorite!!!
