Hypericum Berries bloom in the fall and come from a plant in the Hypericaceae family that is associated with good health in several ways. Its healing properties are universally known to uplift moods, alleviate headaches and muscle pain, as well as to calm nerves and panic attacks.Ancient Greeks and Romans began using St John’s Wort around 500 B.C. to fight depression, calm anxiety, and to cure the negative effects of snake bites and sciatica. At one time, its leaves were utilized to heal wounds. Today, the hypericum plant is well known for its berries.
The berries grow abundantly in a wide variety of colors, including orange, red, white, black, bronze and gold. Since they bloom in so many different colors, it's easy to enhance any bouquet in which they are placed.
