St. John's Wort is a traditional herb that has been used for hundreds of years. Known in Greece to this day as "Spatholado" (sword oil), the oil infused with St. John's Wort, which bears a characteristic deep red color, is said to have been used in ancient times to heal sword wounds suffered by soldiers in battle.

The 16th century physician Paracelcus not only used St. John’s Wort internally, but also made amulets with it, mainly to target demonic influences. He said: “This herb should always be carried under the beret (flat head cover), at the bosom as a wreath, or otherwise carried in the hands. One should often smell at it, put it under the pillow during the night, stick it around the house or hang it on the walls.” As an amulet worn around the neck, it is supposed to inspire love and favor. “The doctor should know that God has put a great arcanum into the herb, for St. John’s Wort is a universal medicine for the whole human being."

In folk medicine, St. John’s Wort is used as a wound healing agent and nerve agent. It has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, contracting, antispasmodic and digestive effects. Especially the oil of St. John’s Wort is famous in medicine.

Our salve is made with St. John's Wort oil produced with local wildcrafted freshly picked North Idaho flowers.

Our salves follow the Greek home remedy tradition of the olive oil-beeswax salve that the lady of the house used to make and keep handy in the home as an all-purpose healing salve. The olive oil nourishes and heals and the beeswax helps to create a barrier that locks in moisture.

Best baby diaper rash salve EVER

When using a product on a sensitive area - especially when that sensitive area is on my baby's body - I do a lot of research on the company beforehand. Knowing that this company grows most of their own herbs, uses 100% USA beeswax, and organic Greek olive oil (from her country), and uses recipes passed down through traditions that stand the test of time, I felt very comfortable with Herbacea Botanical's ingredients and processes. I use a tiny smear each night before bedtime diapering, and we have 0 diaper rash and redness! (The few times that I forgot it and we developed some redness, this product immediately alleviated the symptoms!)
