Words by Mikaël

Depuis quelques années, on parle beaucoup du Millepertuis - aussi appelé "Herbe de la Saint-Jean", "Herbe aux milles trous" ou "Chasse-diable" - et de ses propriétés contre la dépression. Pourtant cette plante possède plusieurs autres vertus thérapeutiques reconnues depuis longtemps.

Son nom latin Hypericum perforatum, vient de deux mots grecs : hyper, qui veut dire "au-dessus" ou "au-delà", et eikon, "icône" ou "apparition". Quant à perforatum, il décrit les nombreux petits trous de la feuille, visible à l'oeil nu.

Cette plante vivace, qu'on retrouve partout au Canada, pousse très bien dans les champs, les clairières et les fossés. Fin juin, nous pouvons admirer ses belles petites fleurs jaunes qui ornent les bords de route.

On obtient l'huile de Millepertuis en faisant macérer les fleurs ( ce n'est donc pas une huile essentielle) au soleil dans de l'huile d'olive vierge, pendant deux lunes. On peut alors constater que l'huile devient rouge. Cela est dû à l'Hypéricine, un des composés de la plante qui nous apportent tant de bienfaits (le taux d'hypéricine est à son maximum juste avant la floraison). La macération ainsi obtenue est indiquée pour favoriser la cicatrisation des plaies, guérir les brulures et les coups de soleil. Son action anti-inflammatoire permet de soigner les entorses mineures et de soulager les douleurs musculaires.

Cette huile de macération constitue également une excellente "huile porteuse" qu'on peut utiliser pour diluer les huiles essentielles. (il existe aussi une huile essentielle de Millepertuis qu'on obtient en distillant les les feuilles de la plante, mais le rendement étant très faible, elle est chère.)

L'huile aux fleurs de Millepertuis concervera ses qualités thérapeutiques environ 2 ans, si on la garde au frais et à l'abri de la lumière.

Words by Anny Schneider

This essential oil of St. John 's Wort is very rare, moreover it is little concentrated in the plant, which explains its high price.

On the other hand, it has exceptional analgesicantiviral and antiseptic properties .


Against acute muscle or osteoarticular pain, it is advisable to use it diluted in a vegetable oil, for example St. John's Wort, and to avoid exposing the skin directly to the sun after application.

Origin of this essential oil

This organic St. John's wort essential oil from Slovenia is distilled from the seeds of the plant.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.
