Our Organic St John's Wort (Hypericum Perforatum) Carrier Oil is prepared by infusing the flowers in a fixed oil, such as sunflower oil for approximately three weeks. This is then pressed and strained, leaving an oil that is bright red. St John's Wort Oil is particularly useful when applied topically for skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis, mild burns, bruising, haemorrhoids, varicose veins, minor wounds, sores and ulcers.
- The oil should only be used for external application and should not be taken internally.
- St John's Wort, when taken internally, is known to interact with many prescribed medications. Evidence suggests that SJW preparations may interact with medicines, either by affecting drug metabolism or levels of neurotransmitters. Unfortunately there isn't enough reliable information available to know if St John's Wort oil is safe when applied topically to the skin. We would therefore recommend that you do not use this oil when taking prescribed medications unless you have the express approval of your health care provider.
- Do not apply to fair or sensitive skin prior to sun exposure as it may cause photosensitivity.
