St John's Wort or Hypericum perforatum is named after St John's the Baptist as the plant flowers around the 24 June, his birthday. ‘Wort' is also an old English word for plant. This bright yellow flowering plant is cultivated worldwide and has a history of use dating back to the ancient Greeks and Romans when it was believed to ward off evil spirits. Not too far of the truth, today the dried flowers from the plant are used in herbal therapeutic supplements in the treatment of mild depression.
The leaves of St John's Wort contain a healing pigment called hypericin and a chemical called hyperforin which both appear to help improve levels of serotonin in the brain which is partly responsible for mood and emotion.
