Elderflower and BFing?

So, I've been doing my homework on herbs and breastfeeding ... I know Elderberry (the fruit itself) is safe; but I'm curious about Elderflower (considering much of the plant is toxic).

I'm asking because I'm considering trying Traditional Medicinal's Echinacea Elder tea for immunity (flying solo with the kids for three months has me nervous about getting sick) - summer is generally my susceptible season, oddly enough.

The only "questionable" herbs are the elder flower; and yarrow & peppermint (which are non-toxic but can decrease supply). Obviously, I don't want to poison the babe. Oddly, I can't find anything on elderflower within the natural/breastfeeding community?
