St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum) is a flowering shrub native to Europe. It gets its name from the fact that it often blooms on the birthday of the biblical John the Baptist. People use St. John's wort to treat depression and menopausal symptoms.


Our St. Johns Wort is grown organically on the island of Crete in Greece. Here for centuries locals have used this herb in teas and remedies. Crete is famed for having some of the longest living people on the planet. 


Ingredients: St. Johns Wort 

St. John's Wort

  • 1. Put some herbs in the water. Once the water is to a boil, around 100° Celsius, you can add your herbs to the water. Which herbs you use depends on what effects and flavor you are looking for. Regardless of the herbs, you should use roughly one small teaspoon of tea for 200 ml of water.

    2. Boil the herbs for 1-2 minutes. If you add the herbs to the water before boiling, you will create a condensed and bitter brew instead of tea.

    3. Steep for another 5 minutes. Remove the kettle (or pot) from heat and let the mixture sit for five minutes.
