"But the St. John's wort Isn't he a photosensitizer? "
Here are the arguments in favor of the photosensitivity of the St. John's wort :

1- The cows that eat them make photosensitivity spots.

2- Studies have demonstrated photosensitivity in depression patients who had received intravenous hypericin (these patients were then put on tanning tables).

3- During picking, several people had photosensitivity spots after stabbing their skin with powder Mallow flowers.

Let's resume these 3 arguments :)

1- We are not cattle, the comparison is not valid.

2- We suggest applying the oil externally, the use is completely different. Hypericin is an active ingredient in St. John's wort, but not the only of course.

3- Indeed, some people have had this reaction, also observed by the natives, but it is not in this way that we suggest using the St. John's wort.

In fact, the oil St. John's wort would stimulate melanin and our own natural protections against UV. This phenomenon was observed by several herbalists, mainly American. We are a few herbalists in Quebec to have tested it for many years and have obtained excellent results, provided that it makes progressive use. There is no study on this subject and some herbalists are still cautious with this idea.

Pharmacist Jean-Yves Dionne has already talked about this phenomenon and the naturopath Daniel Gagnon specifies that his many customers have never reaction with the internal dye.

It's a solar oil to try :)
