Hypericum Perforatum (St’ Johns Wort) Extract*

St John s Wort has been known throughout history as a vulnerary (wound healer) and was in its heyday on the battlefields of the Crusaders.

In Greek it is known as “spathochorto” referring to its ability of healing sword wounds.

Its mystique was confirmed by the way the juice of the plant turns red on exposure to air – a phenomenon thought to symbolize the blood of St John the Baptist.
