What started out as our Founder & CEO, Jessica Lowery, sharing her story with friends, has turned into a thriving business.
It all started when Jessica found herself curled up in a ball on the floor of a doctors office waiting room desperate for relief from her flu symptoms. Longing for a natural alternative to those awful flu symptoms, especially since she was pregnant at the time, Jessica anxiously searched the internet. She NEVER thought that moment would lead her to discovering the natural alternative that has completely changed her life: elderberry syrup.
“Not only did elderberry syrup help me get back to work the very next day after that awful doctor’s visit, but it has been my go-to for keeping my whole family healthy year-round ever since.
A few years later, I started sharing the amazing benefits of elderberries with my friends on Facebook because I wanted to spare other parents the hassle of missing time from work, paying for doctors’ visits, and most of all, that feeling of helplessness that comes over you when your kids are sick especially when it comes to viral infections. I started making my own elderberry syrup because I wanted control over ingredient quality, safety, and taste. And from this, The POWER of Elderberries was founded… unexpectedly.
At first, it was just a bottle or two here and there for friends and family, but from there, it exploded! Before I knew it, I was running a full-blown side business from my home. Three small children and a full-time job made production a challenge, but looking into the eyes of desperate mothers with sick children and witnessing the relief that my elderberry syrup was bringing to countless families, I saw no turning back.
As I put myself in the shoes of customers knocking at my front door, I knew that if I wanted to truly pursue this business, things needed to change. Quality assurance and consumer safety were at the top of my priority list. I also knew that my elderberry syrup needed to be in retail locations for consumer convenience and accessibility. One phone call led to another, and before I knew it, everything was coming together right before my eyes. God had a plan, and I was faithful in trusting each next step that he guided me towards.
Things became REAL when we moved into our commercial kitchen, my husband resigned from financial planning to wholeheartedly support my efforts, and we hired our Director of Operations to lead production. Since then we have brought on our Director of Sales, Director of Marketing, and additional kitchen staff to help even more people discover The POWER of Elderberries!
I see each of our customers as family and care deeply for their health and well-being. I oversee every facet of this business to build a brand with a foundation of love, trust, integrity, honesty, and passion.”
