About Elderberry

For over many years and till date, Elderberry has been a blessing with its medicinal value and benefits. Elderberry is scientifically known as "Sambucus", a king name for its species. However, it is believed that "Sambucus" comes from a Greek word "Sasuke", a musical instrument made from Elder wood. The music from this instrument is used for spirit healing. Similarly, the common name "Elder" comes from the Anglo-Saxon "Ellen" which means "fire-kindler."

There are different known species of Elder around the world, and these species' production can come in different colors. It could be red, yellow or blue-black as the case may be. However, species of Elderberry can be grouped into three namely:

  • Sambucus Canadensis, popularly called American Berry is said to be commonly found in North America, East and South through Mexico and Central America to Panama.
  • Sambucus Nigra, also known as the Black Elder, is commonly found in Europe.
  • Sambucus Cerulea, which is also known as Blue Elderberry, is found from the Pacific coasts through California to Montana Wyoming and Texas.

There are so many controversial sayings about Elderberry shrubs. Archival documents and writings of herbalists like Hippocrates, Dioscorides and Pliny the Elder reveals the history of the traditional use of Elderberry by Europeans. People from different works of life have related to Elder species in different ways. While some referred Elder to an elixir, some others referred to it as a dwelling place of meeting for witches. 

The blue-black berries are common wild fruit available for consumption by Native Americans who dwell in the north. This gave the European settlers in Northern America the chance to explore Elder shrubs. Still on this, European settlers were able to easily access wild fruits from plants growing in swampy areas, roadsides, and waste areas; this gave the opportunity to produce jellies, juices and wines from Elder shrubs.

Interestingly, Elderberry began to gain prominence because of its medicinal value and health benefits. As a result of this growing interest and increase in demand for Elderberry, consumption and commercial production skyrocketed in the United States. In fact, the vast use of Elderberry made the French, Austrians and Central Europeans produce syrups made from an extract of Elderflower blossoms.
