Wild Dispensary Immunity Tonic
The main ingredient in the Wild Dispensary Immunity Tonic center on elderberry (Sambucus nigra), a plant that has traditionally been used to boost immunity, and to ease the symptoms of colds and flu.
As well as elderberry, the Immunity Tonic contains wild-harvested manuka (Leptospermum scoparium). Our Immunity Tonic also includes a range of powerful traditional medicinal spices: ginger, cinnamon and star anise. These spices work with elderberry and manuka to create a pleasant tasting and highly effective herbal tonic.
