We Were Called To Serve YOU in Big Ways.
We feel deeply called to normalize natural wellness for the everyday mom through education & empowerment. Our community is on a journey to help each other move away from toxic ingredients that are prolific in the mainstream culture and move forward in faith that God has given us everything we need to stay happy and healthy in our minds, bodies and homes.
We believer that we are healthier, together. Our community supports each other through deep meaningful relationships & leverage each others’ unique gifts, tools and resources.
Since 2009, we have been reaching & teaching families about easily accessible, whole food ingredients and non-toxic living that they’ve never been taught about before. We congregate to encourage each other along the way.
From in-home easy cooking demonstrations to freezer workshops to online holistic wellness classes, we now make the most innovated elder-inspired wellness products so that your family can continue thriving in a way that inspires you and makes you feel confident.
Welcome to the Trisha’s Elderberries community. Where everyone comes for the elderberry but stays for the connection.
Why Did I Choose Elderberry?
It’s simple. Sambucus Nigra is one of the most nutritionally dense and versatile trees found throughout the world. Every part (flowers, leaves, berries & bark) can be used to support our body in a myriad of healthy ways, all naturally.
I knew that be an expert, I needed to be laser focused. With a slew of natural wellness certifications under my belt, I knew a lot about a lot of things but never felt that I had the ability to go DEEP on just one.
When I explored all the different plants and thought about our family’s long-term health, I knew that it had to be a plant that was common, easy to grow and could provide for our family, long-term.
The rest, we say, is history.
Trisha’s Elderberries is a project of the Essential Living Collective, an unincorporated private member ministerial association. We are private citizens ministering to private citizens when we’re here together online or in person. Welcome! Learn more here:
The Trisha’s Elderberries Difference
We Go Beyond the Berry.
We’re not just interested in making a product you love, we want to empower you to learn about your whole body and how you can optimize health from your head down to your toes, from the inside out.
What you put in, on and around your body, whether is keeping a low-toxic home, clear & calm mind or properly nourished & moving body are all related.
As a part of our community, you’ll have access to our extensive network of traditional and functional wellness resources to tap into as you continue your journey.
Our ‘team’ extends beyond our kitchen and we are always excited to share them with our elderberry family when they need them most.
Knowledge is Power.
We believe that continuously learning means knowing better and doing better.
We value research of all kind. Our expertise is in crafting a delicious product that brings you the most nutritional impact right now and in the future as well.
We like to think of ourselves as a wellness education organization that’s powered by elderberry.
When most people are sleeping, we are studying, learning and teaching so that our entire community gets healthier, together.
Everything we do is community-driven. The relationships and experiences we create with our members is top-notch and our top-priority.
Our products and services are developed based on what our Elderberry Insiders community quite literally tells us online and at our events. We listen, research, test, get feedback & formulate.
If you don’t want it, we don’t produce it.
We see consider our community as an extension of our family.
We Think Differently.
We are intimately in-tune with what’s happening in the world around us and how that will impact our customers’ lives.
We’re dot connectors. We anticipate what you’ll need from us, before you even know you need it.
We are trendsetters, not trend followers. We set the bar high on creating unique products and services at just the right times.
After my daughter was born in 2009, I spent 8 years empowering women to live a more holistic lifestyle, transforming their minds, bodies, and homes.
After nearly 20 years and 5 different companies recruiting me to climb their ladder, I was completely spent and unfulfilled, to the detriment to my personal health.
In 2017, I was given a huge blessing to hang up those corporate heels and launch our mission full-time through what’s now known as The Essential Living Collective (and here, the Trisha’s Elderberries project).
In my spare time, you can find me listening to worship music, a motivational or work-oriented podcast , gardening or reading a non-fiction book. Also, cats and tacos rock my world.
