Elderflower - Certified OG
Certified Organic by MOFGA and grown regeneratively by one of the Meeting House Farm Collaborative Farms.
Plants are dried immediately after harvest in an on-farm organic certified drying facility to maximize potency and preserve quality.
Infused oils: Organic jojoba extract is infused with dried Elderflowers for 8 days at 80 degrees to preserve potency of the plant constituents. Oil is double filtered after infusion but never pressed.
Our oils will solidify at temperatures around 40 degrees. Bring them to room temperature for best results. Oils will be ready to ship 2-3 weeks after placing your order.
We typically harvest Elderflowers in June.
