Product Details

One ounce, cut and sifted.100% Certified USDA Organic & Kosher.

St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) has a long and colorful history. Records of its use as a medicinal herb stretch back to ancient Greece and Rome, where it was credited with treating wounds and easing depression. Its flowering period around Midsummer has led to an association with St. John the Baptist, and some believed the plant held protective powers against evil spirits.

Medicinally, St. John's Wort remains a popular herbal remedy, particularly for mild to moderate depression. Research suggests it may influence brain chemicals like serotonin, potentially improving mood. However, it's important to note that St. John's Wort can interact with certain medications, so consulting a healthcare professional before use is crucial. Note: St. John’s Wort can cause photodermatitis with sun exposure, use with caution.

Finally, St. John's Wort has roots in magical practices. In some traditions, it was burned as incense for purification or carried as a charm for protection. The vibrant yellow flowers were associated with the sun and fire.
