Elderflower tea promotes sweating and increases urination, thereby enhancing the elimination of metabolic wastes and toxins from the body. This makes it useful as a detoxification aid.
Elderflowers are also used to help reduce inflammation, enhance liver function, treat allergies, arthritis, fungal infections, gout, hayfever, liver disorders, rheumatism, and urinary disorders. Nearly all herbal books refer to the elder as “the medicine chest of the country folk”.
