St. John’s Wort medicated Olive Oil (HERBAL INFUSION)


St. John’s Wort medicated balsam oil (also known as hypericum balm or sword grass) is known since antiquity as a medicated oral supplement, muscle and skin ointment in one. Relatedly, it was used meticulously by ancient Spartans as a healing agent and its original name «sword grass» originates by its use on wounded soldiers.

Prepared with proverbial care, our St. John’s Wort medicated balsam is created using our own hand-picked, organically grown hypericum plants from within Liotrivi Organic Estate. The characteristic native yellow grass-like flowers bloom within our mountainous regions during late spring. After their collection, they are placed into a cool, dark area to properly dry for 10 days. Thereafter, they are placed within glass jars and are filled with our Organic Athinoelia Extra Virgin Olive Oil variety and are air vacuumed under the sun. The solar-infused herbal brews are sunbathed for at least 2 months to ensure that the healing capacities of the herb are thoroughly penetrated by the EVOO, resulting in a deeply red ointment. It arrives to you ready to use. It is kept outside the refrigerator for a long time.
