Today, June 24, St. John's Day, is the time when St. John's wort flowers are traditionally picked. The myth has it that St. John's wort was born from the drops of blood of Prometheus, condemned to be chained to a rock for a hawk to eat his liver, which regenerated itself during the night and then suffered the same fate every day. The best known property of St. John's wort is its antidepressant, but the beneficial effects of this summer plant are varied. They range from anti-inflammatory activity to healing and pain-relieving abilities. To benefit from the properties of St. John's wort, you can also choose to consume it as an infusion: there are ready-made herbal teas on the market in filters to drink in hot water. Sipping St. John's wort in this form is a way to relax the body and mind, especially in times of particular stress. It also allows you to obtain a balsamic effect, therefore useful in case of colds. St. John's wort oil, on the other hand, is to be applied to the skin in the areas affected by the problems: it comes in a thick liquid with a strong red color that is obtained by macerating the hypericum flower in the oil for a long time. Spreading it on the skin allows it to have healing and pain-relieving effects, but, in particular, it is used in case of burns or insect bites. You can buy it at a herbalist's shop or make it at home by following the simple instructions of our St. John's Wort oil recipe. 🌼🌱💗 . 🌎 Oggi 24 Giugno, giorno di San Giovanni, è il momento in cui tradizionalmente si raccolgono i fiori di Iperico. Il mito vuole che l’iperico sia nato dalle gocce di sangue di Prometeo, condannato ad essere incatenato ad una roccia perchè un falco gli mangiasse il fegato, che si rigenerava durante la notte per subire poi la stessa sorte ogni giorno. La proprietà dell’iperico più nota è quella antidepressiva, ma sono vari gli effetti benefici di questa pianta estiva. Si va da dall’attività antinfiammatoria alle capacità cicatrizzanti e antidolorifiche.
