About All Things Elderberry LLC
Founded on real-life health concerns and with a commitment to quality and natural ingredients, All Things Elderberry specializes in producing and distributing flavorful, vitamin-packed everyday-use Elderberry Elixir and tea varieties.
Emilia Rizzuto, the creator of our Elderberry Elixir, began the journey to founding All Things Elderberry at the age of 15, when doctors diagnosed her with Crohn's disease. For the next 15 years, Emilia would be subjected to every type of medication possible, all in a vain attempt to control her symptoms. The medicine that was supposed to be healing her was actually destroying her body and damaging her immune system. As a result, the wife and young mother was tired and weak when she wanted – she needed – to be strong and active. More than anything, Emilia wanted a life free from illness and the harsh side effects of her medications.
During a particularly harsh flu season, Emilia started researching natural products and remedies to protect her family from getting sick. That's when she found elderberries.
Using primarily local and organic ingredients, she began experimenting with different elderberry elixir recipes. That season, she and her family remained healthy and she started bottling her elixir and sharing it with friends and extended family. The reaction was remarkable and the results undeniable. People were feeling better – and healthier – adding her elderberry to their daily routine.
While Emilia knew she had something special, it wasn't until a mutual friend introduced her to Susan Smith that things started to coalesce. Susan's knowledge and experience running a business helped her and Emilia quickly find a mutual interest. And, because of her genuine kindness and warmth, Susan lent her expertise to Emilia. The two women became partners out of this chance encounter, and All Things Elderberry began.
We welcome you to All Things Elderberry and are confident what we've created will help support your family's health as much as it has ours.
