Spotlight on St.John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum)

By ritalymboura, Jul 29 2019 11:27PM

This beautiful little bush with yellow flowers has amazing pain-relieving and anti-depressant properties. Animals tend to self-select it in an infused oil.


I harvested some of the flowers to make my own infused oil this summer. I soaked the flowers in some organic sunflower oil. As you can see in the photos over a couple of weeks the flowers release a red pigment. This holds the active compounds hypericin and hyperforin. The oil can then be strained off for use. I love seeing the yellow flowers turn the oil bright red.
