Around the June 21, people in Portugal celebrate Saint John. The festival is recollective of pagan traditions of the Summer Solstice. Bonfires are created and lit at midnight and participants jump over the flames to burn away evil and be protected. Ritually collecting Plants for medicinal use is another activity~ One of these plants is St.Johns Wort. This is the time when the flower reveals itself and is ready to harvest. Saint Johns wort eases nerve pain and can provide relief. Energetically, it helps to burn away negativity, and is useful for those who need a clear path ahead. This is great to use on tired feet- neck or back pain and anywhere where you need to soothe any inflammation due to injury or emotional exhaustion.
