There is no other beneficial herb that bespeaks more of sunshine than St. John's Wort, or St. J’s, as we fondly call it. It loves sunny open places, blooms at the height of summer solstice, soothes the skin after sunburn, and even brings sunshine into our lives through its mood elevating properties.
The bee is a symbol of the potency of nature. Like its human counterpart, it is attracted to a plant by its fragrant, colorful flower. The more beautiful the flower, the better chance it has of getting pollinated. In this symbiotic relationship, the plants grow, the world is beautified, and the bee gathers nectar from which it creates the sweet elixir of life – honey!
