St. John’s wort (SJW) is a herbaceous, flowering perennial that can grow up to one metre in height. It grows abundantly in uncultivated ground; woods, meadows and roadsides, throughout many areas of the world.
It possesses pale, glabrous leaves that are dotted with distinctively transparent oil glands and its flowers are a bright, characteristic yellow.
The herb’s botanical name is derived from the Greek words ‘hyperikon’, meaning ‘over an apparition’, and was thought by the Greek physicians Dioscorides and Hippocrates to be so abhorrent to evil spirits that it would cause them to flee from the body.[1,2]
