St. John’s Wort is a flowering plant that grows all across the world and has been used for more than 2000 years for its purported benefits.

St. John’s Wort Flower Extract Powder for Mood Regulation

St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum) has a long history of medicinal use dating back to ancient Greece and beyond. St. John’s wort flower has antibacterial, antiviral, and antioxidant properties. However, it is most popularly used in modern medicine to treat mental health conditions such as anxiety and depression.


Though St. John’s wort flower is native to Europe, it is safe to grow in most of the northern hemisphere. Its name comes from its blooming time. Hypericum perforatum typically flowers around the feast of Saint John, just after the summer solstice, on June 24th. While the plant commonly sprouts in waste areas, roadsides, and fields, it has a fascinating and diverse tradition of use. Gaius Plinius Secundas (Pliny the Elder) recorded St. John’s wort’s benefits and origin in his 37 volume Natural History. This book became the blueprint of our scientific knowledge on St. John’s wort for centuries. In Greek tradition, St. John’s wort is referred to as hypericon (above the icon) in a nod to its power “over the image,” presumed to be the image of self. Throughout Europe, peasants used the plant to protect them from evil spirits, demons, witches, and misfortunes.

What is St. John’s Wort Extract Used For?

Today, St. John’s wort isn’t warding off witches, but it is a natural alternative to antidepressants and anti-anxiety medication.

John’s Wort for Depression

It is believed that St John’s wort affects the brain in a similar way to standard antidepressant medication. Research suggests that it increases the activity of “feel good” brain chemicals like serotonin and noradrenaline that play an essential role in regulating our mood and perception of the world. St. John’s wort also has the same side effects as antidepressants, such as loss of libido.

John’s Wort for Anxiety

Depression and anxiety are often co-occurring, meaning people who suffer from one mental illness are likely to develop another. St. John’s wort could have a positive impact on anxiety by keeping the brain from using up neurotransmitters like serotonin, dopamine, GABA, and norepinephrine. As a result, the brain will use these neurotransmitters more effectively. The outcome? An antidepressant and overall feel-good effect staving off anxiety attacks and lowering stress levels.
