St. Johns Wort treats depression

St. John’s Wort extract is effective as an anti-deprSt. John's Wortessant in the management of mood disorders.  Because the herb has an important side effect of increased photosensitivity, it may be best to consider St. John’s Wort as a winter time remedy.  Although internal use of St. John’s Wort increases one’s sensitivity to the sun, when applied to the skin St. John’s Wort Oil acts as a sunscreen.  What a beautiful balance offered by one herb!
