St. John's Wort Tea

St. John's Wort tea

St. Johns Wort tea

Many choose to take St. John's in capsule or tincture form which affords standardization of dosing when dealing with mild depression. However St. Johns Wort tea offers the synergistic benefits of the whole herb. The taste is not unpleasant but rather woody with a slightly bitter undertone which can be improved with the addition of sweeter herbs. Drink St. Johns tea as a daily nerve tonic and as a nightcap to calm the bladder.
