    What is the recipe for the elder, yarrow, and peppermint medicine?

    Do you use elder flowers or berries?
    Do you use yarrow flowers or the leaves?
    Do you use the mint flowers or the leaves?

    I picked about 19-gal bags of elderberries this fall in northern Utah. I also have a black elderberry bush in my backyard that I got about a gallon bag worth of berries this year. I just make syrup out of them with sugar and use on pancakes, etc. It is real tasty. These blue elderberries can make you really sick if they are not cooked (personal experience from only a small handful). Will the flowers from the blue elderberry make you sick also?

    I’ve used yarrow to stop bleeding from a knife cut I got when I was 12 years old at summer camp 40 years ago. Had read about it in a survival book I had and it really worked. Will also numb your mouth if you chew on the leaves.
