Native to Europe and Western Asia, this protective herb is a shrubby perennial with bright yellow flowers. When rubbed, the flowers and leaves yield a red oil that has many medicinal uses. This herb gets its name from its connection to Saint John's Day, celebrated in late June. The word wort comes from the Old English wyrt, meaning "plant".

Originally a pagan celebration centered on the summer solstice, Saint John's Day, also known as Midsummer, is recognized as a religious holiday. Depending on the cultural tradition, it may be celebrated any day between June 21 and 25.

This herb is known to bring light in times of darkness and acts as a calming influence. Use it in love spells or place it under your pillow for romantic and prophetic dreams. Burn it to cleanse your space or to banish negative influences.

**Always consult a physician before using herbal products, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or on any medication(s). These herbs, resins, roots, flowers, and powders are meant to be used for spell and ritual work.
