St Johns Wort Infused Oil
St. John's wort oil is used for bruises, is anti-inflammatory and is often used by herbalists to help speed healing of wounds and sores. St. John's wort oil has antiphlogistic qualities, in other words it helps to reduce inflammation. Externally it is applied to bruises, sprains, burns, skin irritations, or any laceration accompanied by severed nerve tissue.
The German government allows such external St. John's wort preparations to be labeled for the treatment or after treatment of sharp or abrasive wounds, myalgias (muscular pain) as well as first degree burns. This is not a new herbal treatment, but one that has been handed down for hundreds of years. Once known to pharmacists as ''red oil'' or ''Hypericum liniment,'' it was still available in pharmacies in the early twentieth century. The practice of soaking the flowers in olive oil, infusing the oil in the sun, then using the oil internally as a diuretic and external application for wounds dates at least to the time of the first edition of Gerard's Herball (1597).
Our oil is a wonderful quality infused using sunflower oil.
