Blooming around the summer solstice, St. John’s Wort is named after John the Baptist as it flowers around the time of the holiday honoring this saint. In plant-spirit medicine, St. John’s Wort is known as the bringer of light, illuminating dark places within the soul and mind. When infused in oil, St. John’s Wort turns that oil bright red as the active constituent hypericin is released while the plant macerates. Our St. John’s Wort salve is made with the solar-infused oil of this plant. According to the University of Rochester Medical Center, "You can apply oily hypericum forms directly to your skin. It can help treat injuries, muscle pain, and first-degree burns.” St. John’s Wort oil and salve may also ease nerve pain associated with Shingles.
