St. John's wort or Hypericum perforatum has a long history of herbal use.
It fell out of favour in the nineteenth century but recent research has brought it back to prominence as an extremely valuable remedy for nervous problems.
In clinical trials about 67% of patients with mild to moderate depression improved when taking this plant.
The flowers and leaves of St. John's wort are analgesic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, aromatic, astringent, cholagogue, digestive, diuretic, expectorant, nervine, resolvent, sedative, stimulant, vermifuge and vulnerary.
The herb of St. John's wort is used in treating a wide range of disorders, including pulmonary complaints, bladder problems, diarrhoea and nervous depression.
The flowering shoots are harvested in early summer and dried for later use.
Use the plant with caution and do not prescribe it for patients with chronic depression.
A tea or tincture of the fresh flowers is a popular treatment for external ulcers, burns, wounds (especially those with severed nerve tissue), sores, bruises, cramps etc.
