St. John’s Wort: Details

Weekly Photography Challenge: Details – St John’s Wort

When macerated in alcohol to make tincture, St. John’s Wort colors it red within minutes, while infused in oil, the process takes several days. The plant has been used for at least 2400 years for alleviating muscle and joint pain, treating burns, wounds, insomnia, mild depression, even keeping evil spirits away and exorcism.
