St. John's Wort | Uplift + Brighten

Pine + Clover Apothecary

St. John's Wort | Uplift + Brighten

$16.00

Blooming once a year near Summer Solstice (the longest day of daylight in the year!), St. John's wort is sunshine embodied. Its bright yellow flowers are infused fresh, which is vital for its healing bioactive constituent hypericin to be extracted (which is the active ingredient in St. John's wort studied for its treatment of depression). This hypericin is evident in the bright ruby red extraction of fresh blooms, which is always such a beautiful sight to behold. A deeply brightening ally, St. John's wort carries the energy of the midsummer sun. A relaxing nervine well known for its ability to soothe anxiety and tension and uplift the spirit, it has been researched extensively as an antidepressant. Commune with this potent ally and feel the summer sun bestow its warm rays upon you as the breeze offers up a breath of fresh air. 

1fl oz

Fresh, organic St. John's Wort blossom + stem, 60% water, 40% vodka

Shake well. 2-4mL under the tongue up to 3x per day. Do not take if currently on SSRIs, as St. John's Wort is contraindicated with them.

Founded in 2020 by herbalist and lifelong student of the outdoors Britt Gillman, Pine + Clover Apothecary is a line of bioregional + wildcrafted whole plant goodness rooted in the rhythm of the seasons. Britt believes that adopting the rhythm of nature connects us with an ancestral support network: the plants. This is reconnection and remembrance: finding solace in the outdoors and comfort in the woods.

Britt is trained as a photographer, maternal support practitioners, copywriter, and bioregional herbalist. She has, over the years, unintentionally carved out an everyday way to practice what feels like homecoming: photographing, writing about, gathering, and crafting with plants. Her family of four lives in a small beach town facing the Quebec Laurentian Mountains and they grow all the Pine + Clover herbs in their gardens and forage the rest from wild spaces.

Britt approaches herbalism in a reciprocal way: acknowledging that plants are gifts we must appreciate, tend to, and find ways to give thanks for. She lives in deep communion with the land, and every time she infuses the tender sweetness of red clover into hot water, or grasps a handful of white pine needles to marry with oil, she is coming home…weaving herself into the thread of ancestral remembrance and synchronous connection with the land.
