Echinacea, Elderflower & Elderberry - Important Covid-19 Info

I am writing this in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic that's hitting the world hard.  We have received some conflicting information as to whether Echinacea, Elderflower (which we use in our Cold & Flu Tincture), and Elderberry are safe and appropriate for viral infections, namely the Covid-19 infection.  There has been some conjecture as to whether Covid-19 could cause a "cytokine storm" which means an over-response by the immune system.  As this virus is so new, not much is known about it yet and whether this is true or not.  Some have expressed concern that these herbs might further stimulate the immune system and cause an over-reaction, making a cytokine storm worse.  After doing some exhaustive research, I have new and interesting information for you on this.  These are my findings:

Hi Pam. I am a midwife and I use the Labor Tincture.  It SO ROCKS!!   I have a friend who has trouble sleeping..... she says her own thinking keeps her awake.... do you have an herbal sleep helper?  I told her I would ask you because I was SO HAPPY with the Labor Tincture that you make.  Thank you for your herbal skills!  (Yes, we do!  Goodnight Combo Tincture and Goodnight Lite!)  S.S.,  LM, CPM
