                    St John's Wort was a favorite all throughout history. It has been used throughout history as a mental medicine. Typically, it's well known for applications in dealing with mood disorders, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. The great minds throughout history who adored its use were highly respected and intelligent people, who changed the course of human history in many ways. Today there is a modern scientific understanding of the herb, called phytochemistry.

To say that St Johns Wort has a few pharmacological constituents is beyond an understatement. Take a look at the list below. This ability to produce these complex phytochemicals are written into the plants DNA ( Deoxyribonucleic acid ). This DNA can be thought of as an organic form of software. Now you tell me, which chemist are more advanced, human chemist or plant chemist? I believe the answer is an obvious postulate.

Note: The oils are the most prized part. They are redish in color.

Flavonoids (epigallocatechin, rutin, hyperoside, isoquercetin, quercitrin, quercetin, amentoflavone, biapigenin, astilbin, myricetin, miquelianin, kaempferol, luteolin) Phenolic acids (chlorogenic acid, caffeic acid, p-coumaric acid, ferulic acid, p-hydroxybenzoic acid, vanillic acid) Naphthodianthrones (hypericin, pseudohypericin, protohypericin, protopseudohypericin) Phloroglucinols (hyperforin, adhyperforin) Tannins (unspecified, proanthocyanidins reported) Volatile oils (2-methyloctane, nonane, 2-methyldecane, undecane, α-pinene, β-pinene, α-terpineol, geraniol, myrcene, limonene, caryophyllene, humulene) Saturated fatty acids (isovaleric acid (3-methylbutanoic acid), myristic acid, palmitic acid, stearic acid) Alkanols (e.g. 1-tetracosanol, 1-hexacosanol) Vitamins & their analogues (carotenoids, choline, nicotinamide, nicotinic acid) Miscellaneous others (pectin, β-sitosterol, hexadecane, triacontane, kielcorin, norathyriol)

Tinctures

                    The reason people make tinctures ( spirits ) is because certain compounds made by plants are not soluble in water. Alcohol on the other hand, can dissolve both polar and non-polar constituents. They also have a much longer shelf life than a water extract. You can even evaporate some or most of the alcohol to concentrate the extract.

Tinctures are easy enough to make. You simply soak the plant matter in high proof liquor, like everclear, for a minimum duration of one month. Keep them stored in a cool, dark place. Light can damage certain chemicals. It can also help the extraction process to shake the mixtures up from time to time. After the time has passed, the remaining plant matter can be filtered through a cheese cloth and placed into glass tincture bottles with droppers. You can either dispose of the remaining organic material, or save it for another technique known as calcination.

Calcination


                    Calcination is an ancient chemical extraction process where plant salts are extracted from plant ash. The result is diamond like crystals, which are pure plant salts. This option is up to the user. Some prefer not to go this far, but it is fascinating to know that you can. The ashes are simply filtered though everclear. Of course, the plant material used it that left over from the tincture production.
