Safety considerations: Do not take St. John's Wort without medical advice if you regularly use other medicines, including anti-depressants. 

Avoid exposure to strong sunlight, especially sunbathing, if using St. John's Wort long term as it increases skin photo-sensitivity and you may sunburn more easily. 

About: Harvesting the bright yellow flowers of St John’s Wort is like gathering sunlight!  We pick each blossom by hand and prepare the extract “in the field”, weighing and adding the proper percentage of alcohol and water; then, watch the magic of the invisible red oil held in the Hypericum blossoms turn the extract a ruby red!   

St John's Wort tastes mildly bitter, sweet and astringent and is considered cool and drying in nature. The freshly prepared extract supports and the nervous system, circulates the Qi and supports tissue repair.
