    description

    IMPORTANT: As of 7/23/14 the new stock of St. John’s Wort oil is not red in color, it’s more of a brownish-red color. Here’s the explanation from the herbalist who prepares this oil for us:

    We have been making St. Johns Wort Oil every year for over 20 years. In all those years about 4 times Mother Nature has thrown us a curve ball, cool wet summers. When this has happened the oil instead of being bright red, is a brownish red. The oil has all the same healing properties, as the bright red oil, it just looks different. The oil is made with fresh flowering tops of the St. Johns Wort and organic extra virgin olive oil, It is placed in our green house to allow the plant material and the oil to merge into one magnificent oil.

    Below’s our standard description for this oil which has applied to previous supplies of this oil received from this same herbalist:

    St. John’s Wort oil (Hypericum perforatum L.) (SJW) with its wonderful red color is prepared for us by a well known herbalist who owns her own farm and grows her own ethically-crafted herbs. This is not a mass produced, commercial oil. Our SJW oil is lovingly prepared in small batches (based on the quantity of flowers available) with extra virgin olive oil using the techniques this herbalist has employed for many years.

    SJW oil is not available year round, once it is gone, it is gone until next season. This oil will keep for two years when stored tightly sealed, away from direct light and heat. SJW may be used as is or with the addition of various essential oils. It s rarely used for making soap because of its cost and scarcity.

    Ingredients: St. John’s wort (flower) and organic extra virgin olive oil.

    Uses: Anti-inflammatory, for burns/reddened skin/bruises/neuralgia/sciatica/inflamed nerves, for sunburn with the addition of German Chamomile EO. A massage blend made with SJW and Birch or Wintergreen EO works wonders for gout and a massage blend with Foraha and Helichrysum also works wonders for arthritis and rheumatism. Please note that the infused oil does not offer anti-depressant benefits and should not be taken internally. Skin to which SJW oil has been applied should not be exposed to the sun until several hours have passed.

    Renowned herbalist and teacher, SUSUN WEED, has been kind enough to allow us to include the information provided below obtained from her writings and website.

    A healing salve can be made by mixing 1 part melted beeswax to 3 parts infused oil. Infused oils should be stored in a cool dry place or in the refrigerator and used within one year. If stored in the fridge, the oil will solidify. Bring to room temperature before using.

    The vermillion red oil of the flowers or flowering tops of St. Joan’s (St. John’s) wort is mild enough to be used regularly to promote breast health, yet powerful enough to seem positively miraculous as it repairs damage to the skin and nerves of the breasts. I consider it an indispensable ally for all women. In addition to using it for breast massage, I favor it for assistance in healing the armpit and breast area after surgery, reducing skin damage from radiation, and relieving nerve and muscle pain. Its antiviral powers pass through the skin and into nerve endings, preventing and checking a wide variety of skin problems, including virulent hospital-bred infections such as shingles.

    I find St. Joan’s wort oil an exceptionally useful ally for women dealing with nerve damage caused by removal of axillary lymph nodes. Frequent applications restore sensation, promote good lymphatic circulation, help prevent lymphedema, and offer prompt and long-lasting relief from pain.

    Women who apply St. Joan’s wort oil before and after radiation treatments report that their skin stays healthy and flexible even after dozens of treatments. In addition to preventing radiation burns, this oil prevents sunburn, too. It s the only sunscreen I use to protect my skin, which gets plenty of sun. And it s a superior healer of sunburn, as well.

    St. Joan’s wort oil is an invaluable ally for those with sciatica pain, leg and foot cramps, back pain, neck aches, arthritis pain, bursitis, or any other ache. I use it externally (along with 25 drops of the tincture internally) as often as every 10 to15 minutes when dealing with the acute phase of a cramped muscle. For long-term pain, I use oil and tincture as frequently as needed, sometimes as often as ten times a day.

    St. Joan’s wort oil is also the best remedy I've found to relieve the pain and promote rapid healing of nerves and skin troubled by shingles, cold sores, mouth and anal fissures, genital herpes, and chicken pox. Hourly applications of oil, plus 25 drops of tincture taken internally at the same time, are not excessive in the initial, acute stages of these problems. As symptoms abate, I use fewer applications. In chronic conditions, I use the oil and tincture four times a day. Used as a scalp oil during chemotherapy, St. Joan’s wort encourages rapid regrowth of healthy hair.

    A healing salve can be made by mixing 1 part melted beeswax to 3 parts infused oil. Infused oils should be stored in a cool dry place or in the refrigerator and used within one year. If stored in the fridge, the oil will solidify. Bring to room temperature before using.
