St. John’s Wort Tincture

There are more than three hundred species of Hypericum or St. John’s Wort; for alternative medicine purposes. St. John’s Wort grows as a wild herb all over the United States, mostly in waste places, hayfields, and on roadsides. It begins blooming around the summer solstice, and continues throughout summer. To check your St. John’s Wort for the active ingredient, hypericin, use the following recipe to make a tincture. Your St. John’s Wort tincture should be bright to dark red. My hypericin tincture  was dark maroon  and was very effective for me, your experience may differ.

Wild Crafted St Johns Wort Tincture

You will need: 8 oz. 100 proof  Vodka
Pint Jar with lid.
2-3 oz. Dried St. John’s Wort Tops or Whole Herb fresh or dried (enough to fill jar)

Stuff jar with dried St. John’s Wort, cover with vodka. When using fresh wild herbs as opposed to dried, it is probably best to use a higher proof alcohol. Put the lid on tight and give it a good shaking.  Shake tincture mix every day for two weeks. Strain liquid from the St. John’s Wort mixture. Use leftover herb in compost pile for your herb garden.
