i had to hold this jar of st johns wort oil up to the light to show you its wonderful red color! for the first few days it really just looked a kind of ugly darkish color, but i have had this jar sitting out to absorb the sun and moonlight for about a week now, and suddenly, beautiful red! st johns wort oil has a place in the home medicine chest, being useful topically for bruises, strains, srapes, nerve pain and burns, soothing repairing damage. very easy to make. the fresh flowers and some of the plant leaf and stem is just cut up and put in the jar and then filled with olive oil. i just shake mine daily and it just sits out in the garden gathering the sun and moon energy! drying some also as it is a special helper for menopausal women like me. here is a lovely recipe for a tea
2 parts lemon balm
2 parts chamomile
1 part St. Johnswort
1 part red rose petals
i will probably use some of this oil in salves with my home harvested beeswax also!
hugs to all who visit comfrey cottages
