Picking elderflower during Foraging for Mental Health

Elder is a tree found throughout the Netherlands. In the spring, the tree produces small, white elderflowers and in the summer, dark purple berries. Both elderberries and elderflowers have been used for centuries as medicine. While elder is best known for its anti-viral properties, the flower also has benefits for mental health.  Elderflower extract has been proven to suppress neurotoxicity in the brain. Because of its detoxifying effects, it has been used as an antidepressant.
