About this remedy – Hypericum is a plant native to Asia & Europe and acts on the central nervous system and the peripheral nerves. Due to its anti-viral properties, it can be helpful for viral conditions such as cold sores. It assists in pain arising from damaged nerves and acts on the skin to support wound healing. The plant’s bright yellow flowers bloom around St John’s Day, marking the summer solstice in the northern hemisphere. Thus it captures the maximum light from the sun.Complaints – Used for painful nerve injuries after cuts, bruises, burns and sores. Also used to treat post-operatively for painful incision wounds.
