Hypericum | Latin Name: Hypericum perforatum | Family: Hypericaceae | Extraction: Maceration | Plant Part: Buds & Flowers

An amazing deep red carrier oil, the flower buds of the plant is what gives it this bright colouring.

A perennial plant growing up to almost 1 metre high, native to Britain and France. From summer to Autumn it is covered in flowers each with five petals. When held up to the light the flower petals look as though they have many tiny holes in them but this is actually translucent oil glands.  When the buds of these plants are crushed hypericin is released which will stain your fingers blood red.
