Sambucus nigra

For many Swedes, the elderflower’s soft scent is synonymous with summer, perhaps because the aromatic flower grows so abundantly in our mild climate and because we also love its sweet, subtle flavor in teas, cordials and summer desserts. In beauty, the delicate white flowers are packed with skin-nourishing components including minerals, flavonoids, proteins and vitamins, making them a rich yet soothing skin care ingredient.
