Harvested fresh from our farms organic St.Johns Wort around the summer solstice infused with local organic sunflower oil, solar warmed for 4 weeks and then strained. We use a special method that makes our oil shelf stable, while also pulling out more constituents yielding a highly potent oil.
St Johns Wort oil is topically used for:
herpes viruses like shingles, cold sores
we love what the team over at evolutionary herbalism wrote about this beloved plant.
“There are a few plants that are traditionally used around this time for ritual and celebration, but one delicate yet powerful little plant that distinctly bears great resemblance to the Sun is our one and only St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum). Flowering around this time of year, St. John’s Wort is a plant that corresponds quite strongly to the archetypal force of that hot beaming sphere high in the sky.
This remedy would help those who have lost touch with that essential part of the self, where darkness has crept into their psyche, and they have lost their confidence, their path, their purpose- they feel alone, isolated, and disconnected from Life. A certain heaviness weighs on them and they feel “down.”
St. John’s Wort functions to help to strengthen the inner Sun, to bring the light back into someone’s life. It feeds that inner light, fans and brightens the flame of consciousness, and where that light shines, the darkness dissipates. Rather than focusing on what’s wrong, what’s not working, and what is holding one back, this remedy teaches our minds to find the positive in every situation, to take our challenges and struggles and transform them into our teachings, our strength, and our power. In this way it is “above the apparition” (the meaning of the Greek word hypericon), and helps us to face our inner demons and conquer them.”
don’t under estimate the effectiveness of topical application of plants!
