St. John's Wort, also known as St. John's, a thousand-hole grass or devil hunting, is a plant known for its properties against depression. This plant also has several therapeutic virtues, which have been known for a long time. Its Latin name, Hypericum Perforatum comes from two Greek words: "Hyper" meaning above or beyond, and "Eikon" meaning icon or apparition. Perforation in Latin means perforated. Indeed, the leaves contain a thousand small holes visible to the naked eye.
This perennial plant, found throughout Canada, grows well in fields, clearings and ditches. From June 24, we can admire these beautiful little yellow flowers that adorn the edge of the road. St. John's wort oil is obtained by massing the flowers in virgin olive oil. It can then be seen that the oil becomes red. This is due to hypericin, one of the compounds of the plant that brings us so many benefits. The rate of hypericin is at its peak just before flowering.
The maceration thus obtained is indicated to promote the healing of pleasures, heal burns and sunburn. It is an excellent carrier oil that can be used to dilute essential oils. Its anti-inflammatory action can treat minor wounds or sprains and relieve muscle pain. There is also an essential oil of St. John's wort that is obtained by distilling the leaves of the plant. Making it very low, this oil is expensive. The St. John's wort flower oil retains its therapeutic qualities for about two years in a bottle stored away from light in a cool place.
