Massage & Body Oil - St. John's Wort & Lavender
100% natural, packed with the best organic ingredients and, of course, handmade with much love x
St. John's Wort & Lavender oil promotes vitality and energy flow, and is both healing and stimulating. Great for sensitive or easily irritated skin, infected acne or pimples. Deeply warming for stiff and tense muscles or aching joints.
The fresh St. John's Wort (Hypericum perforatum) flowers are hand picked by us during sunny days in June/July and mature for six weeks in organic Sunflower oil in sunshine and warmth. During this process the oil changes from pale yellow to deep blood red - a truly magical natural transformation of sunlight into healing power!
St. John's wort has long been used by herbalists to treat wounds, burns, nerve damage and pain, bruising, skin irritations, inflammation, ulcers, swellings and itchy hemorrhoids. St. John's wort has antiviral and analgesic virtues and can help with the healing of blisters from shingles (apply 3 times a day).
It can also enhance blood flow, promoting deep warmth, elimination of toxins and healing - just what is needed for cold winter hands and feet, fissures, itching, gout, rheumatism, artritis, athlete's foot, sciatica, dry skin rashes, burns (after cooling), blisters, facial nerve pain (as in neuralgia and shingles), muscle pain, lumbago and muscle hardening. It can be used as an after sun, but is best not used before exposure to sun.
You can also massage St. Johns Wort oil gently on your tummy to relieve menstrual cramps.
With added pure essential oil of 'Alpine' Lavender and with its wonderful, fresh scent, St. John's Wort oil is a healing gift of the highest quality.
