    One of my cousins sent me this pic, asking if I knew what it was. No clue!

    Hypericum perforata is another plant also known as St. John’s wort. It is recognised by the tiny holes in its leaf. It is a well known medicine plant, but has a problem if taken with about half of the medicines available. It can cause side effects. We also make an oil by infusing the yellow flowers in oil. This turns the oil red, It is good to rub on burns but don‘t go out in the sun.
