St John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) is most often thought of as a mood-elevating herb, but it is also used topically as an anti-inflammatory, wound healing herb. The red hypericin, when properly infused in oil, makes St. John’s Wort a useful external herb as well, particularly because it may help the pain associated with wounds, minor burns and atopic dermatitis. It is believed to help reduce wound closure time and may help regeneration of tissue. For these reasons, we have included St. John's Wort in Rescue Salve and our Eczema Herbal Bath Bag
