St Joanswort: Living with Windows of Light
As a plant of the zenith, St. Joanswort/St Johnswort, Hypericum perforatum, absorbs and emanates light. Her sturdy, forthright nature, willingness to grow in the most challenging places and overall resilience makes her an ally to call on whenever a sunny window for shifting perspective is needed. Pain relief, improving circulation, an auntie-viral, reducer of inflammation, St Joan carries much in her possibility bag.
