In contrast to its many uses, some countries have identified St John's Wort as an invasive species and noxious weed. Though useful to humans, it can be dangerous to livestock, sprouting up in pastures and causing photosensitivity to the grazing animals that feed upon it. Ingestion of the plant may lead to health complications and even death.
St. John's wort helps promotes a healthy mood and emotional balance.
Uses and Preparations: Traditionally used as a tea, sometimes available in tea bags; also used to make a red St. John's oil for use in liniments and lotions, but only from fresh material. May also be administered as a capsule or extract for convenience.
Precautions: Specific: Not to be used during phototherapy. May decrease the blood levels of certain orally administered drugs. Consult a qualified healthcare practitioner before taking with medications. General: We recommend that you consult with a qualified healthcare practitioner before using herbal products, particularly if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medications.
