New Production 2021
Cosmetic, for cutaneous use.
Also called St. John's Oil.
Its flowers are harvested, as tradition dictates, at the moment of its maximum balsamic quality, on June 24th and placed in organic extra virgin olive oil for 40 days in the sun.
The active ingredient of St. John's Wort is released into the oil and is colored red.
Called the MIRACULOUS oil , it was used during the Crusades by doctors to treat stab wounds.
St. John's wort oil contains flavonoids, tannins and phloroglucinols (hyperforin) and these are the properties:
- skin regenerating
- skin inflammations
- skin spots
- stretch marks
- diaper rash
- insect bites
- muscle and joint pain
For external use, St. John's wort oil has no particular contraindications, except for a possible hypersensitivity to the active ingredients, first of all hypericin.
The only recommendation concerns the prohibition of exposure to sunlight or artificial sources of ultraviolet radiation immediately after using St. John's wort oil. In fact, this product is highly photosensitizing, that is, it tends to amplify the effects of the sun's rays on the skin, especially in the case of people with fair complexions or freckles.
Unlike ingested hypericum flower, it does not conflict with hormonal treatments.
Sold in dark packaging to preserve the active ingredient which would be damaged in contact with light.
This offer contains 2 x 500 ml in a food tin of black extra virgin olive oil from organic hypericum oleolith.
