St. John's wort oil

St. John's wort oil


freshly collected flowers and buds

cold pressed olive oil

Jar with lid

fine sieve

Brown glass bottle


The freshly collected flowers and buds of St. John's wort are placed in a glass and poured with cold-pressed olive oil. You should add enough oil until the flower mass begins to float. The closed jar is placed in the sun for 6 to 8 weeks and shaken daily. When the oil has turned dark red, you can strain it through a fine sieve and squeeze it out. There should be no visible residue in the oil, otherwise simply strain again through a linen cloth or filter. Only then can the St. John's wort oil be poured into brown glass bottles. Don't forget the label and then store in a cool place.


2 to 3 tablespoons internally a day, lukewarm

Help by:

Internally: reduces pain from burns, colic, good nerve agent for depression and hormonal disorders

Externally: painful sunburn (Caution is advised when the sun is too strong in the south and solariums. The skin's sensitivity to light is increased, so you get sunburned much more quickly.)
