Shrubby St. John's Wort
Another of my favorite plants is the Shrubby St. John's Wort. This is another shrub I got at a native plant sale.
I have long been interested in herbal medications and remedies; I'm trying to learn all I can. St. John's Wort is an herb I take for chronic depression and it really seems to help.
So when I found the Shrubby St. John's Wort plant, I knew I had to try growing it. For the past 3 years, it has given me a vast abundance of flowers. The flowers are such a beautiful yellow color and it is at peak performance right now. I want to learn how to distill the flower to make a St. John's Wort liquid.
If anyone out there has every distilled St. John's Wort, I would love to hear from you! :)
