CLICK TO ENROLL

St. John’s Wort has an all-around  sunny disposition and it aids in resolving pain on both physical  and  emotional levels. St. John’s signature, perforated leaves, like tiny windows, and bright yellow flowers bloom around the time of Summer Solstice and can literally let in the light when we are experiencing sadness or depression as it elevates our spirits, helps us regain energy and motivation, reclaim joy and a positive outlook on life!

St John’s Wort has a strong affinity for the nervous system, acting as a trophorestorative – revitalizing and building up the strength and restoring function to the nervous system over time. As an analgesic it can be used both  internally and externally  for acute and chronic conditions and is especially effective for diminishing nerve pain, relieving sore muscles and joints, and for healing wounds and burns. It protects and supports liver health.

It can moderate inflammation and is antimicrobial, a specific remedy for viral infections that involve the nerves, both preventing and shortening the duration of cold sores and herpes infections.

Additionally, students will learn how to make a flower essence! Flower essences are incredible medicine that work on an emotional level. We are freed from that which holds up back and are able to move forward. St. John’s Wort is a powerful emotional ally that can help us to access the good memories that we have suppressed with the bad and take back our childhood.
