Organic Saint John's Wort
Saint John's Wort, Hypericum perforatum, named after St. John the Baptist because it blooms around his celebration day (June 24), was once thought to rid the body of evil spirits. Since this roadside plant reduces inflammation and promotes wound healing, it has been used topically to help heal wounds and burns. Cherokee Indians used the mucilage from the leaves as an ointment to treat bruises and burns, and introduced the plant to early Colonists. "Wort" is Middle English for "herb."
