Relief for Shingles Pain!

The benefits of St John’s Wort.

If you get chickenpox and recover from it, the virus can remain dormant in your nerve roots for years. The virus may reawaken through physical or emotional stress and resurface as shingles that attacks the nerves and causes severe pain.

St John’s wort oil applied topically can provide pain relief, even when it is severe and hard to shift, as it has anti-viral and healing properties.

As not all oils are equal strength, I recommend Artemis Nerve & Skin oil, as it has been harvested when the plant is in flower and in the intense heat of the summer sun when the active constituents are at their strongest.

I have seen this oil work extremely quickly to give relief, even though the person had the shingles for a few months and tried many different options to no avail.  

St John’s Wort oil is a wonderful wee remedy to keep in your first aid cabinet as it has many applications topically including:

  • Neuralgia
  • Restless Legs
  • Herpes lesions (including genital and coldsores)
  • Mild burns (including sunburn, and radiation burns)
  • Itchy bites
  • Eczema and Psorasis
  • Superficial wounds
  • Irritated, dry and flaky skin
  • Scar tissue
  • Aging skin


St John’s Wort Oil is on the shelf at The Herbal Dispensary.
