Ingredient Rationale:


Hypericum, also known as St John's Wort this ancient remedy was used to ward of evil spirits by the Greeks. Its common name came from the fact that it flowers around 24th June, when St John the Baptist was beheaded and its yellow petals turn red when crushed!. Hypericum is often given to treat nerve injuries due to its effective action on the central nervous system. Its varied properties include sedative, anti-inflammatory and antidepressant.


The flower and leaves of Calendula officinalis also known as 'English' or 'Pot' Marigold, are used in this ointment. It is found in many gardens worldwide. Calendula has been used for centuries for its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic qualities. It has been used so much in Russia that it has the nickname of Russian Penicillin. Products containing Calendula have been used as standby for health professionals, such as midwives, for many years.
