Native to Europe, St. John's Wort is named after John the Baptist and is currently found around the world in temperate climates, at times considered a weed or invasive species. St. John's Wort has been used in herbalism for centuries to promote healthy mood, emotional balance, healing, and pain relief among other things. Common applications include teas, tinctures, and extracts.
Extracts using St. John's Wort are commonly known for their distinctive orange or red hue depending on the type of extraction and species/part of the plant used.
