St John's Wort calms inflamed skin concerns, alleviates nerve pain and aids wound healing. As many ailments involving nerve pain are not easily treated allopathically, St John's Wort may be of possible use.

Anti-inflammatory, astringent, vulnerary, nervine, antimicrobial, antidepressant, it is increasingly recommended for the treatment of depression. In addition, neuralgic pain, fibrositis, sciatica, and rheumatic pain. Externally, it is used as a valuable healing and anti-inflammatory agent. Furthermore, it's especially useful for healing sunburn.

History: The genus name Hypericum is from Greek and means over an apparition as the herb was once considered odiferous enough to cause evil spirits to depart.
