Cretan Saint John's Wort (Hypericum Perforatum)
St. John's wort is a herbaceous perennial plant. Its history dates back to the time of the Druids, who considered it a blessed plant and believed that its smell alone was enough to ward off evil spirits. During the Middle Ages, surgeons used it as a medicine for every disease, but its main use was as a cardiac tonic and healing agent. At the beginning of the 19th century, doctors administered it as a balm for diseases of the respiratory system, as well as for wound healing.
