Macerating St. John's Wort

Here are the picked flowers of St. John's Wort which are macerating
in a cold-pressed pure olive oil.
The glass jar is put in a sunny spot on my balcony for thirty days.
Each day the jar is shaken.
The mixture turns a dark reddish colour after this.
Then it is filtered and kept in dark coloured bottles for future use.

This preparation is appreciated for muscular or joint pains.
Regular runners rub this oil into their legs before and/or after running.
