Words by Mikaël

The common Saint John's-Wort also known by the names of herb St. John, grass with a thousand holes or hunting-devil, is a recognized plant for its many properties including its effects antidepressants.

This plant also has several other therapeutic properties recognized for a long time.

Its Latin name, Hypericum perforatum  (L.) comes from two Greek words: "Hyper" which means above or beyond, and "Eikon" meaning icon or appearance, "perforatum" in Latin means perforated.

Indeed, the leaves are provided with thousands of small holes visible to the naked eye.

This perennial plant found everywhere in Canada grows very well in fields and bright clearings.

From June 24, St John's grass being one of its common names, we can admire these colonies of pretty little yellow flowers that adorn the roadsides.

St. John's Wort oil is obtained by macerating the tiny yellow flowers picked sparingly one at a time in certified organic virgin olive oil and filtered 1 month later. 

You can then see that the oil turns red.

This is due to hypericin, one of the compounds in the plant that brings us so many benefits.

The hypericin level is at its maximum just before flowering.

The maceration thus obtained is indicated to promote wound healing, heal burns and sunburn, and even relieve shingles.

It is an excellent carrier oil that can be used to dilute essential oils.

Its anti-inflammatory action helps treat minor wounds or sprains and relieve muscle pain.

⇒ The oil with St. John's wort flowers retains its therapeutic qualities for about two years, stored in a tinted bottle protected from light in a cool place.

Words by Anny Schneider

This oil is the result of the cold maceration in the sun of the buds of the flowers of our St.John’s Wort gathered around St.John and in the middle of summer then macerated during the full season and filtered.

This so-called St.John oil calms burns, infections and even suppurations of viral origin such as herpes.

It can also be used as a base for analgesic oils.


Maceration of organic St. John's Wort flowers harvested by hand in Canada in organic cold pressed olive oil.


Its powerful anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties make it a first-rate ally for treating muscle, joint and rheumatic pains.

It soothes and heals all types of skin irritation.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
