St John's Wort Oil is infused from the hypericum blossoms at just the right stage with the characteristic red color. Anti-inflammatory, particularly soothing to inflamed nerves, helpful for cases of neuralgia, sciatica and fibrositis.
St John's Wort Oil is effective on sprains, burns, bruises. Blending with calendula oils heightens effectiveness in treating bruises. (Adding helichrysum essential oil will really strenghthen the effects of the blend.)
It is also useful in treating all inflamed nerve conditions: neuralgia, sciatica, firbrositis, etc.
It is useful in treating sunburn since it actually lowers skin temperature. For sunburn it is also good to add Lavender essential oils.
We have found that St. John's Wort oil with a few drops of Wintergreen added is the ONLY thing that will relieve the pain of gout.
Please note that St. John's Wort Infused oil has none of the anti-depressant effects of the herbal extract. The Hypericum used to treat anxiety and depression does not come through the infusion process. The infused oil has the other valuable healing effects, however.
