St. John's wort oil


St. John's wort oil

Ingredients:

freshly collected flowers and buds

cold pressed olive oil


Jar with lid

fine sieve

Brown glass bottle


Preparation:

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.


Application:

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.)
