September is an ideal time to forage and benefit from natural remedies

September’s bumper-packed edition of Herbs With Barbara brought us Elderberries and medicinal compound in the form of Damson Gin!

Elderberries are naturally antiviral and can be beneficial for a number of conditions – especially for colds and flu.

You can make a lovely sweet-tasting syrup, an ideal cough medicine or daily pick-me-up.

But never just take from nature.  Always ask first!

Be inspired and listen again to this month’s edition of Herbs With Barbara!
