July 20 Herbal Calendar

Check on your St. John’s Wort oil, it is probably ready to strain off! Remove the plant material from the oil and let it sit a few more days before the final pour off. This will allow any water to settle to the bottom of the jar. By pouring off the top portion and composting the bottom portion (you will see a distinct change in the oil at the bottom) your oil will last longer and be less likely to go rancid. For a longer shelf life be sure to store your completed oil in a labeled bottle or jar in the fridge.
