This soothing St. John's oil wax cream is handmade by the monks on Mt. Athos in Greece. Comprised of all natural ingredients, this wax cream is perfect for soothing rashes, sores and burned skin. Most people recognize St. John's wart as helpful for depression but according to alternative medicine specialists, it can also be helpful in treating anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, and inner ear pain. St. John's wart oil can be used topically as a remedy for skin injuries, nerve pain, burns and hemorrhoids (although we don't recommend using this item to treat hemorrhoids). Two chemical compounds found in St. John's wart oil, hypericin or hyperforin, are thought to have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial effects. St. John's wort also contains tannins, which are naturally occurring compounds thought to relieve skin irritations.
