St. John's Wort - Pure Essential Oil
St. John's Wort, or Hypericum perforatum, is a flowering plant in the family Hypericaceae. It is native to temperate parts of Europe and Asia, but was introduced to North America from Europe and has spread to temperate regions worldwide as a cosmopolitan invasive weed. It is well-known in herbal medicine as an antidepressant.
The oil is transparent and colourless liquid, with a warm and herbaceous aroma, reminiscent of wild carrot seed oil. It is not commonly used in perfumery, but is favoured in aromatherapy.
It is traditionally used as a sedative and for the treatment of depression or melancholy, for its excellent anti-inflammatory and healing properties, and as an antiseptic.
It blends with citrus oils, ginger, and peru balsam.
Characteristics: soft, herbal, balsamic, earthy, warm
