The Practical Herbalist and Practical Herbalist Press are pleased to announce the publication of the seventh volume of The Practical Herbalist’s Herbal Folio series. Saint John’s Wort: Antidepressant and So Much More by Candace Hunter and Sue Sierralupé is now available exclusively on

Medieval herbalist knew what science has validated today: Saint John’s wort is a versatile weed! Herbalists have used this sunny flower to ease headaches and muscle tension; repair sore and damaged muscles, tendons, and nerves; stave of bed wetting and ease nightmares; and, of course, ease anxiety, stress, and depression. It’s no wonder our ancestors carried the seeds of this weed across the world, helping Saint John’s wort to naturalize across the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and New Zealand.

Come with us on this look into Saint John’s wort’s properties in this edition of The Practical Herbalist’s Herbal Folio series. We’ll look deeper into Saint John’s wort’s medicinal properties, the conditions it best treats, and the cautions you’ll want to heed.

Take a tour through Saint John’s wort’s history, learning more about its folklore, mythic, and magic properties, then discover a variety of ways you can use Saint John’s wort to care for hearth, home, and your animal companions.
