We are currently transitioning to a new label for our single and combination extracts. You therefore may receive the label you are used to or one of our new labels. If ordering more than one extract you may receive both types of labels as we make this shift.

Hypericum perforatum is an herbaceous perennial that grows wild along roadsides and in disturbed meadows. Native to Europe, Saint John’s wort has naturalized in temperate climates around the globe. Its bright yellow flowers are reminiscent of the sun and are traditionally harvested in the peak of summer between June and August. St. John’s wort has a long history of use in traditional Western herbal practices. Typical preparations include steeping as tea, oil infusion, and extract.

St. John's Wort helps promote a healthy mood and emotional balance.*

Hypericum perforatum is one of many species known commonly as St. John's wort, and is the species most commonly associated with herbal preparations. It is native to Europe but has since been naturalized to other temperate climates around the world, with particular prominence in North America. The plant is a creeping perennial, producing star-shaped yellow flowers containing long, abundant stamens. St. John's wort is traditionally harvested near the beginning of the flowering cycle on St. John's Day, which falls annually on June 24th. The flowers continue blooming throughout the summer and may be freely harvested throughout the season.
