May is the month that St. John’s wort is in full bloom and we most certainly will not miss out on the opportunity to make our own St. John’s wort oil whose therapeutic properties are widely known! Its antinflammatory attributes were appreciated from the ancient Greeks who would use it for all sorts of wounds, bruises and muscular pains.
We have collected the healing plant from the surrounding area with extra care. The blossoms are covered with extra virgin olive oil and are let in the sun for 3 days. Afterwards the mix will be kept in absolute darkness. In about forty days we will have at hand our first “produce”.
