There’s hardly any other herb that’s said to cure more illnesses than the legendary St.
John’s wort. People don't call it “Blood of Christ”
for no reason as it affects both our body and spirit.
So, let’s see how it can help you
As we said, St. John’s wort can have a huge impact when it comes to the spirit. That’s why it may take away any depressive conditions, stress, anxiety or panic attacks you’re experiencing. The herb’s antidepressant properties
are already proven as it increases the serotonin levels, a.k.a. the happy hormone.
- Bad thoughts
We all have these moments when our mind is full of negative thoughts, right? If that happens to you, you better make yourself some tea. Take one teaspoon of the dried spice and brew it in 200ml of hot water for 5 minutes.
When you have horrible headaches that make you feel weak and irritated, St. John’s wort might help. However, to achieve permanent results you should drink a cup of tea at least two times a day
– in the morning and in the evening.
The essential oils that are present in the herb seem to have extremely powerful effects on our sleep. Coming from the previous point, if you drink a cup of this tea before you go to bed, you might end up falling asleep like a baby
Of course, the herb has lots of other health benefits. However, do you know in which cases you should avoid it
- John’s wort may decrease or increase the effects of some medical pills. That’s why you should consult a specialist, if you want to combine the herb with medicine.
- In case you’re suffering from photosensitivity, you better don’t use the spice as it may affect you negatively.
- People with low blood pressure should be very careful when using this herb as it may be contra-indicated for them.
In the end, we would like to give you a simple, but super powerful recipe
with St. John’s wort:
Put some part of the herb in a jar or a bottle up to its neck. Then sip extra virgin olive oil and put а gauze on top. Let it stay under the sun for 40 days
. You will see the liquid turns into blood-red. After that time, filtrate and pour into dark bottles.
This liquid may last more than a year
in the fridge. You can use it as an anti-inflammatory source over various wounds, burns, furuncles, back pain, skin allergies, herpes, bites, etc.
