St. John’s Wort Tea
St. John’s Wort Tea is a beloved herb with a strong resonance in many herbal traditions. This herb was named after St. John the Baptist, whose holiday is on June 24th, according to the Catholic calendar. St. John’s Wort often blooms around this time of year.
In Europe, it was long considered auspicious to gather St. John’s Wort on June 24th, but Earthwise Beauty makes a special effort to collect St. John’s Wort Tea on June 24th as long as it has begun to bloom by then. (Some of the tea may come from a little before or after June 24th, depending on the bloom times in different meadows.) They hand-collect the aerial parts of blooming St. John’s Wort, leaving the roots in the earth, and they never harvest the whole patch, leaving some of the flowers to go to seed. They wash and shade dry the whole stems and then cut them into smaller pieces by hand. St. John’s Wort is caffeine-free.

Our small-batch, organic skin care is based on alive, unrefined, plant-based ingredients. We want to guide you in how to protect the “aliveness,” the life force contained within. If an herb remains fully potent for a year from the moment of harvesting and drying, a skin care product made using that herb extracted in water or included in a mask will remain fresh for about six months. Our products are properly and adequately preserved with high-end natural cosmetic preservatives, but they are not overloaded with the preservatives. We want your products to be safe, but if we used higher percentages of preservatives (like those needed to obtain a shelf life of two to four years), the products might be drying, irritating, harsh, or sensitizing for some customers. Additionally, many plant constituents can’t express their adaptogenic intelligence and full range of healing action if they are subdued with high percentages of antimicrobials.Browse All Products
