St. John's Wort

2 oz

St. John's Wort is an herbal remedy derived from the flowering tops of the St. John's Wort plant. Some potential benefits of St. John's Wort include:

Mood Support: St. John's Wort is best known for its potential antidepressant effects. It contains compounds such as hypericin and hyperforin, which are believed to increase levels of serotonin, dopamine, and other neurotransmitters in the brain. St. John's Wort is often used to alleviate symptoms of mild to moderate depression, anxiety, and mood swings.

Anti-inflammatory: St. John's Wort has anti-inflammatory properties that may help reduce inflammation throughout the body. It may be beneficial for conditions such as arthritis, muscle pain, and inflammatory skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.

Nerve Health: St. John's Wort may support nerve health and function. It has been used traditionally to alleviate nerve pain, such as sciatica, neuralgia, and neuropathy. St. John's Wort may help reduce pain, tingling, and numbness associated with nerve damage or inflammation.

Wound Healing: St. John's Wort has been used topically for its wound-healing properties. It may help promote the healing of minor cuts, burns, bruises, and abrasions by stimulating blood flow to the affected area, reducing inflammation, and protecting against infection. 

Directions: add one teaspoon of St. John's Wort to hot water. Steep for 5 to 10 minutes. Strain and enjoy.
