Taproot Medicine Wellness Syrup

Wellness Syrup is a slightly updated formula that is potent enough for adults and safe for children.

It's meant to be taken during seasonal shifts, at the onset of illness, and for people with compromised immune systems (sleep-deprived, very stressed, elderly, coming off antibiotics). It's alcohol free (honey-based), safe for children, and uber local with Sonoma County honey, elderberry and jujube. It also makes an excellent 'sick drink' combined with apple cider vinegar, hot water, and crushed garlic.
