To help maintain healthy skin exposed to the environment
Made from pure, natural ingredients. Alfred Vogel loved this age-old herbal remedy, which thrived in his native Switzerland. His principles required a thriving, sustainable source for these herbs to be grown. Through painstaking research and organic cultivation, our gardeners identified a species of Hypericum high in active agents and resistant to disease, and so helped create the glorious yellow-headed leafy stems whose tips are used to make this oil.
St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum) is a perennial plant indigenous to Europe. It is named for its tendency to flower and be harvested around the 24th of June which is St. John’s day. Traditionally, the plant was used to ward off evil – it was hung over religious icons round the house on St. John’s day. Whilst the St. John’s wort plant is seen by many as beautiful and graces many ornamental gardens, it is also viewed as a noxious weed that is toxic in pasture land in many countries where it has been introduced.
