St. John's Wort
St. John's Wort or Hypericum perforatum (Oregon) is very uplifting plant medicine and has been regarded a key essence for all levels of depression and PTSD. He is famous in Eastern and Western Europe for helping with all levels of depression. Simply put, he helps us see the silver lining in life’s “clouds”.
When you are overcome with sadness or trapped in traumas from your past, he is made up of the stuff that will teach you to see the brighter side. He looks over your heart and helps to bring light back in. If he were a person, he'd be that friend who would come over to your house and start lifting the shades in your bedroom that you were hiding from the world in. He tolds your heart and holds your hand and helps you to start to see joy in life again. Then he will teach you how you can stay in this vibration.
This is highly recommended for those with PTSD, those who have experience shock and those battling depression. This is St. John's Wort "thing." He's the go-to for these pains. He is also a great friend for when you have been emotionally exhausted.
Physically, he brings deep potency as well, including helping with prostatitis, herpes 1 & 2, spleen, ulcers, achy joints and muscle pain.
Spiritually, St. John’s Wort is said to be a “gift from the constellation of Orion.” He is powerful crown chakra medicine and will align you with “God consciousness.”
