Excessive Sweating Herbs — St. John’s Wort
Is St. John’t Wort Really One Of The Best Excessive Sweating Herbs?
Well, kinda. You see, it’s been used for centuries to treat mild to moderate depression and anxiety. It’s a mind-soother, a mood stabilizer. It has earned the reputation of being "Nature’s Prozac."
No, it’s not one of the most popular herbs to treat hyperhidrosis, and it doesn’t specifically target excessive perspiration, BUT
Yes, we’ve seen St. John’s Wort help excessive sweaters, and we believe it can help you. IF–and it’s a big if–you do two things right:
1. Use the herb in the correct way (what’s the correct way to use herbs?), and
2. ‘Stack’ (what’s ‘Stackin?’) it with other natural remedies for hyperhidrosis.
You won’t hear people talking about St. John’s Wort as one of the specific excessive sweating herbs. But excessive sweating has a BIG psychological component to it. If you’ve ever been sweatin’ yer butt off in a social situation, or at a job interview, you can attest to that.
St. John’s Wort will help by bringing a sense of calmness and serene to your everyday interactions. Over time as it starts to kick in (remember herbs aren’t drugs so they take longer to work) you’ll notice a big difference.
So how should you use it? Get some dried St. John’s Wort from somewhere online. Here’s a site with a good reputation. It’s pretty cheap, like ten bucks.
Use it like the other excessive sweating herbs we recommend–make a tea with it. Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 tablespoon dried St. John’s Wort
- 1 cup of water
- 1 lemon wedge (optional)
- Honey to taste (optional)
- Bring water to a boil. Take off the heat and put the St. John’s Wort in the water.
- Let steep (sit there) for between 3-5 minutes.
- Strain, pour in cup, add lemon and honey if desired, and enjoy!
Enjoy a cup of this tea in the morning and one in the evening. You’ll notice a difference in the way you feel after a few days.
As your mind becomes clearer and more relaxed, you’ll start caring less about the hyperhidrosis. As you continue ‘Stackin’ other products, you’ll notice a serious reduction in the amount you’re sweating, and your mind will get even more clear and relaxed.
