History and Origin

St. John’s-wort was introduced in Canada. It is now a widely spread plant, except for the Prairies. St. John’s-wort is a medium-sized herbaceous plant with numerous five petals flowers of a bright yellow. Petals are dented and dotted with numerous resiniferous black glands. The flowers used to enter in the preparation of mead, liquors, and a longevity elixir.

Native Americans use it as a tranquilizer as well as to treat cuts, skin problems, rheumatisms, respiratory problems, diarrhea, and fever. Flower tops were also used to make dies for wool and silk.
