St. John's wort oil offers an unusual combination of ingredients, which together are responsible for its effect: The best known are probably the anti-inflammatory hypericin and hyperforin. In addition, there are, for example, antioxidant flavonoids and tannins or small amounts of skin-friendly sesquiterpenes.

Cosmetic use
A massage with the oily plant extract is good after sports and revitalises. St. John's wort oil can be used pure or in creams for dry skin or ointments. It is also ideal for after sun lotion.

From the very beginning, we have focused on organic farming. It protects the climate, ensures soil fertility and protects the environment. Synthetic fertilisers and pesticides are not used and this applies to all ELMAS products.

St. John's wort - exclusive cultivation

Our contract nursery grows St. John's wort exclusively for us. Surrounded by nature, the farm is located in its own fields. The 4th generation family business has 80 years of rich experience. Today, around 35 different crops of medicinal and spice plants are planted on 100 hectares.

St. John's wort is cultivated every 3 years. Organic cultivation is very time-consuming because the weed pressure is very high and the weeds have to be removed by hand. Furthermore, harvesting can only be done in the 2nd and 3rd year, otherwise the infestation by the St. John's wort beetle and the fungus Colletotrichum is too high.

Only the flowers and buds, or a small part of the stem, are harvested by hand. Immediately after harvesting, the St. John's wort is crushed and put into a specially developed oil recipe for maceration. Afterwards, it is stirred and shaken daily for 2-3 weeks so that the active ingredient hypericin is released into the oil. The typical reddish colour develops. Following this maturation process, the St. John's wort is filtered off and delivered directly to us.

Studies show that St. John's Wort oil can be used to support general well-being and promote emotional balance. It contains compounds that have demonstrated calming and potentially antidepressant properties in research. Additionally, it can be used to care for the skin, particularly for irritated skin, due to its ingredients.
