The flowers of the elder are used for their anti-imlammatory, emollient and mild astringent properties. Its active constituents are terpenes, flavonoids, phenol carboxylic acids (such as caffein acid and ferric acid), mucilage and tannins. Elder is healing for injuries, infection and various skin conditions. Elder blossoms are used for both oily and dry skin in facial steams, cleansers, scrubs, lotions, moisturizers, soaps, toners and salves. Elderflower water is a classic herb used as a toner and reputed to be one of the beauty secrets of many women. It makes a good aftershave tonic and has been used to calm sunburns, reduce enlarged pores and reduce eye puffiness when used as a compress. Elder also makes a relaxing bath herb and benefits dry hair when used in shampoos, conditioners and hair rinses. When used internally as a tea or tincture, elder helps to clean the pores from the inside.
