Multitasking with St. John's Wort

St. John's Wort is a plant of many uses -- whether as a multipurpose weapon in alternative medicine or as a hardy, attractive and deer resistant garden specimen.

It chases demons away. That was an early claim made of St. Johns Wort (Hypericum). Named for St. John the Baptist, St. Johns Wort (SJW) supposedly protected people against evil spirits of all kinds.

Anti-Depressant

Modern studies suggest the herb also combats psychological demons. As a result, SJW has earned respect as an anti-depressant. The studied ingredients -- hypericin, hyperforin and pseudohypericin, found in both the leaves and flowers -- act like an SSRI (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor). According to some research, the herb may be more effective than such pharmaceutical industry SSRIs as Prozac and Zoloft in easing mild to moderate depression. Proponents also tout its effectiveness against the dark mood swings of PMS, menopause and Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Although its champions argue that St. John's Wort works more gently than conventional pharmaceuticals, it is not without side effects. They include sensitivity to light, gastric upset, rashes and potentially dangerous drug interactions. The herb should not be used with other anti-depressants or birth control pills, for example.

Other Applications in Alternative Medicine

Healers of bygone centuries valued the plant for its ability to chase away such physiological demons as nasty bacteria, viruses, inflammation and assorted aches and pains.

Modern research has substantiated some of those claims. Hypericin and hyperforin do appear to have antibiotic properties. Tested on mice, hypericin and pseudohypericin curbed the replication of a retrovirus similar to HIV. Those tests suggest SJW might be useful in the battle against AIDS, but the encouraging antiviral results for mice have not been duplicated for humans.

Herbal healers have long used oils made of SJW to massage into inflamed muscles. SJW salves have helped heal many a wound, while also discouraging infection.

Wildcrafting St. John's Wort

Many health food stores sell SJW pills. More adventurous souls can make their own alternative medicine remedies from wild SJW plants, which have thrived across North America since their introduction from Europe centuries ago. Most studies of SJW's medicinal properties have focused on one species, Hypericum perforatum. But hypericin and hyperforin are present in the leaves and flowers of many other versions of SJW, including Bushy St. John's Wort (Hypericum densiflorum). The latter is common from southern New England to southern Georgia and west to Texas.

This herbal adventurer prefers to use Bushy St. John's Wort. As a shrub of good size -- growing up to six feet and having a profusion of yellow flowers in mid-summer -- it can readily withstand clippings for the herbal medicine chest.

Making SJW Tinctures, Oils, Infusions

The harvest should take place when SJW is in full bloom, to take advantage of the energy going into those pretty yellow flowers. Some herbal healers argue against washing off the leaves and flowers, but this wildcrafter prefers a rinse or two to reduce the bug count. Washed leaves and flowers should be patted dry before processing.

For an infusion, chop the flowers and leaves. Pack them into tea-balls or a tea-basket, place them in a teapot and add boiling water. Steep the brew, covered, several hours. Strain the brew through cheesecloth. Drink a cup or two per day.

For SJW oil, put the harvested flowers into a canning jar until almost full. Add extra-virgin olive oil (which has wound-healing and antibacterial properties of its own). Seal and place on a sunny shelf for about two weeks. When the oil turns reddish, strain it through cheesecloth, while squeezing the flowers. Store the strained oil in dark bottles and use topically.

For SJW tincture, pack chopped leaves and flowers into a canning jar and fill with vodka. Cover and place on a sunny shelf for 2-3 weeks, during which the jar should be shaken daily. Strain the liquid through cheesecloth and store in dark bottles. Drink a teaspoon, diluted in a glass of water, 1-3 times a day.

Enjoying SJW in the Garden

Even without any healing properties, SJW, particularly the bushy variety, has earned its place in the sun. Hypericum densiflorum erupts in cheerful yellow flowers in mid-summer and stays in bloom for weeks. The foliage is delicate, but keeps its compact shape. In the fall, the leaves turn golden.

Bushy St. John's Wort is tough, without being invasive. It prefers full sun, but tolerates partial shade. It has broad tolerance for different soil conditions and stands up to drought. It also stands up to deer. Indeed SJW's deer repellent virtues may protect nearby plants from deer damage, as well. SJW does indeed banish at least some garden demons.
