... try it for depression, externally.
SJW (St. John's wort, Hypericum perforatum) is all but banned for internal use over here (... pharmaco politics), but SJW oil is freely available - after all, that's used externally, and can't possibly be used as a non-patentable cheap alternative to expensive meds, can it?
Yes, it can. A lady told me last weekend that she's put nicely red SJW oil under the soles of her feet, and started to smile soon after. And that it works even better if you put a salve on top of the oil, but hey, why not use SJW salve to start with? That should work a treat.
Gotta love herbs.
