Latin Name: Hypericum perforatum Linnaeus

Description: Hypericin is responsible for the deep red colour of the macerated oil.

Method of Extraction (Maceration): In the south of France, hypericum buds and flowers are steeped in good quality vegetable oil (virgin olive oil is the preferred medium) for many days in full sun and with occasional agitation, after which the plant material is filtered off. Exposure to sunlight reportedly results in a four fold increase in flavonoid content (quercetin).

Therapeutic Properties- External Use: 

  • Beneficial on wounds where there is nerve tissue damage
  • Inflamed nerve conditions, hence its use in cases of neuralgia, sciatica and fibrositis
  • On burns and inflammations, including sunburn; the oil will lower the skin temperature
  • It is said that hypericum oil can be massaged on the lower back in cases of bed wetting
  • Has been suggested for haemorrhoids, gout, rheumatism, sores, ulcers and wounds, urticaria, herpes
  • A 50/50 mix with calendula oil is effective on contusions and bruises

Cosmetic Use: The oil is excellent for use on the skin, as it is soothing, antiseptic and lnalgesic. It has been recommended as a cosmetic skin tightener
