I’ve used St John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum) in this muscle balm due to its long tradition as a remedy for tired and aching muscles. It’s mentioned in John Gerard’s ‘Generall Historie of Plantes‘, first published in 1597. This work was referenced by John Parkinson in 1640, although I haven’t followed his directions of adding earthworms to the infused oil! I’ve added a small amount of yarrow essential oil due to it being an anti-inflamatory and helping with circulation.
