Important, please read before using St. John’s Wort Oil. Never add to before sun or sun tanning products because, while St. John’s Wort Oil is soothing to the skin, it also makes the skin photosensitive.
This means that the skin shouldn’t be exposed to the sun after St. John’s wort has been applied externally in the form of an ointment, oil, cream, compress or lotion. Even taking it internally may make fair-skinned people more sensitive to the sun. Hypericin promotes blood circulation in the skin and activates the finer capillaries.
