Hypericum perforatum

St John's Wort (flower) is traditionally used to relieve restlessness, anxiety and nervousness, and as a mood elevator for those experiencing symptoms of depression. It is useful for several types of depression including seasonal affective disorder and it provides emotional balance. It is also used both topically and internally for nerve and spinal injuries, nerve pain, sciatica and shingles. It also has antioxidant properties, evidenced through the dark red color that it produces, which is rich in flavonoids providing both anti-viral and anti-inflammatory activity. St. John's Wort has been used for thousands of years and is used widely around the world. It can be found growing naturally in Europe and North America.
