Can I use St. John's Wort in an infused oil for diaper rash and made into a butt balm?

I do- I make a salve with SJW and calendula for regular use... sometimes I add shea butter , too...if Im feeling exotic. Mostly I like good ol local beeswax- I still have some from the Sonoran desert and I swear that beeswax has special powers!

darn, I knew I forgot to patent that name - lol

Sorcy, (been making 'buttbalm' for ages... mostly with yarrow, plantain, cloverblossoms, cleavers, comfrey, calendula, propolis, honey, beewax, and a few other odds and ends :)

I am making some baby balm too, I've previously made it using calendula in Jojoba and St. John's Wort in Olive Oil, I was thinking about adding some All Heal (Prunella Vulgaris), do you think this would be too strong a herb for their skin? The child has very bad rashes.

I use SJW, calendula, plantain, chickweed and may be adding or substituting self heal this year. This has proven to be a very effective fresh infused salve for me.
