Feedback from customers and clients:
“The little daughter of my friend had severe eczema. At the age of two years she had to be treated with cortisone. The nana – St. John’s Wort oil surprised us. After only one application the itching was gone, the child has stopped scratching herself. After four more days, the rash has withdrawn entirely. “John H., Graz
“For several years I have used St. John’s Wort oil on my face, it offers excellent protection for dry skin, wrinkles and in the winter from the cold, as well as against rough hands -. Very beneficial because the natural oil contains no perfume” Rosemarie D. Tyrol
“I use it mainly for my sore, burning lips: 3 times a day 1 drop directly on the sore spot: the burning is immediately relieved, and the next day my lips are alright again. Another use for the “nana-John’s Wort oil”: I take a sip of oil daily before my menstruation against mood changes, as it acts as an antidepressant. I’m also pleasantly surprised by the long life of this oil. After 3 years, there´s no rancid odor! It smells “healthy” as on the first day!” Anna H., Vienna
“I take St. John’s Wort oil against scaly skin. All summer long I had a sun allergy. Only then I came across that oil. After I had applied the St. John’s Wort oil three times on my skin, it was smooth. I have tried many ointments before that have not helped at all. My husband takes the oil against his stiff neck. That helps even with a single oiling. “Ingrid N., Upper Austria <>
