Odor: characteristic
Use: St. John’s Wort oil (Hypericum perforatum L.) (SJW) with its wonderful red color is prepared for us by a well known herbalist who owns her own farm and grows her own ethically-crafted herbs. This is not a mass produced, commercial oil. Our SJW oil is lovingly prepared in small batches (based on the quantity of flowers available) with extra virgin olive oil using the techniques she has employed for dozens of years. SJW oil is not available year round, once it is gone, it is gone until next season. This oil will keep for two years when stored tightly sealed, away from direct light and heat. SJW may be used as is or with the addition of various essential oils. It s rarely used for making soap because of its cost and scarcity. Ingredients: SJW and extra virgin olive oil.
