St. John's Wort

Hybericum Perforatum

Herbalists have long employed an ointment made from St. John's wort as an astringent for bruises, skin irritations, insect bites, and other wounds. American Indians used a tea brewed from the plant for tuberculosis and other respiratory ailments. Olant extracts have exhibited anti-inflammatory activity in laboratory animals, and in test tube experiments extracts have been active against the bacterium that causes tuberculosis.

Drinking the flower tea can cause skin burns.
