St. John's Wort oil is a gift of nature, with many beneficial uses. It is produced by mixing the flowers of the wort (Hypericum Perforatum) with organic extra virgin olive oil. It has been used for over 2000 years and is said to have taken its name from its ability to heal the wounds of the ancient Spartans from swords after battles.
The fathers of Medical Science, Hippocrates and Dioscorides, prepared it and used it to heal patients. It was the remedy of the ancient Spartans, with which they healed their wounds after the battles, while it was suggested by the healers of the time to treat depression and stomach ulcers. In English it is called St John's wort oil because it usually blooms around June 24, the date of birth of John the Baptist.
