The shrub with the airy pith - this is the elderberry. In contrast to the matt green of the leaves, the white flowers stand together like little stars in palm-sized umbels. They exude a bright, lovely scent and indicate a sweet inner life. The aphids, which you always meet in large numbers on elderberries and feast on their sap, also follow this fragrance.
Since the beginning of time roots, leaves, bark, flowers and berries have been used in medicine. Today, almost only the flowers are used for colds and flu symptoms.
Skin: The extract of elderflower stimulates the blood circulation of the skin and gives it a pleasant freshness.
