Elderberry blossoms contain, among other things, essential oils and sudorific glycosides that are helpful for respiratory tract infections, dry irritable coughs, and feverish colds.

Harvest time for the white flowers is from May to July, so if you go for a summer walk in rural areas, take a pair of scissors with you to harvest the fresh blossoms!
