About Hypericum Oil: In our gardens, yellow St. John's Wort flowers are hand-harvested at their peak potency around the summer solstice. We use a special, slow infusion process to create this magnificent deep red oil. St. John's Wort has a special affinity for the nervous system, and when used topically, can support a healthy inflammatory response after strenuous activity, ease discomfort, and even support the integrity of the physical nervous system -- particularly at the periphery of the body --fingers, toes, bottom of spinal column. Can be used during pregnancy and postpartum, or anytime, to support healthy perineum tissue.
A soothing and effective oil to consider when tending to the skin after minor cuts, bruises, or burns. Supports the skin's normal repairing process.
