What is it?

St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) is most often thought of as a mood-elevating herb, but it is also used topically as an anti-inflammatory, wound healing herb. The red hypericin, when properly infused in oil, makes St. John’s Wort a useful external herb as well, particularly to help the pain associated with wounds, minor burns and atopic dermatitis. It is believed to help reduce wound closure time, help regeneration of tissue, and increase tensile strength of wounds. Read more on Mama's Herb Garden:…
