Today I walked into the COOP with the intention on buying some super charged facial moisturizer.
I speed walk into the Wellness department, and I am greeted by two of my favorite COOP friends.
'Bonnie! Ang! Help this woman in distress. My face is a freaking corn flake and I can't keep my skin hydrated! What moisturizer should I buy?' Bon asks me If have tried a couple remedies around the house, and I have.
Nothing, nada , zip, zilch have worked.
Bonnie also suggests that I apply St. Johns Wort Oil. According to Susun Weed, it is an excellent skin moisturizer and can be used for a natural sunscreen.
"Contrary to popular belief, St. John's wort does not cause sun sensitivity - it prevents it. It even prevents burn from radiation therapy."
I harvested 3 bags full along the river two summers ago. I have had it steeping in Almond and Olive Oil ever since tonight.

Filtering out the oil from herb.
WOW! 2 summers of steeping brought this beautiful deep red oil.
Ooo la la.
Now, she will hang out and rest for a couple of days.
