Kantarionovo ulje / St. John's Wort oil


(crveno ulje je lani napravljeno kantarionovo ulje, a ovo žuto-zeleno je danas pripremljeno)
Ne znam jeste li čuli za kantarion (odnosno, Gospinu travu)? Ma sigurno jeste. Od te žute biljke se pravi kantarionovo ulje. Većina ljudi je skeptična prema domaćoj ljekarni (ponekad sa razlogom), pa i ja sam godinama čudno gledala baku kada bi mi ponudila da na opeklinu namažem kantarionovo ulje. Na sreću, probala sam, i ostala više nego iznenađena. Ovo totalno djeluje. I to ne onako kad moraš čekati danima da primjetiš razliku, olakšanje je trenutačno.


Koristim ga kada se opečem i kada me ugrize komarac. Na blaznicu uzmem malo ulja i namažem po ubodu, i ništa više ne peče. Znate kako djeca postanu baš cendrava kad ih češu ubodi komarca? Uz malo ovoga ulja, ponovno se pretvaraju u male anđele :)

A na googlu ćete pronaći još puno primjena kantarionovog ulja.

Ali, postoji jedan (priličan) problem. Miris ovog ulja je katastrofalan! Pa treba vremena da se priviknete.

Uglavnom, sve što trebate napraviti je nabrati cvjetove Gospine trave (ja sam stavila i dio stabljike, ali bolje je samo cvjetove). Svježe cvjetove staviti u staklenku i preliti sa maslinovim uljem. Ostaviti na osunčanu mjestu 40 dana. Tada će ulje postati crveno i dobiti će karakterističan miris, tako da ga možete početi koristiti.


Have you heard for St John's wort? Well, I have it in mine garden. And, I made St. John's wort oil. (On first photo you can see mine oil from last year - red one, and that yellow is made today). I use it when I get burned, and if mosquito bites me. (Trust me, it is gold for kids. All mine little cousins love it).

If you go on Google, you'll find many more uses for this precious oil. 

But, I have to tell you one thing. It doesn't have nice smell. Not at all!

Here is how did I make it:


Put fresh flowers in jar (I used stem too, but it is better without it, just flowers).
Pour olive oil in jar, and leave it for 40 days. Keep it on sunny place. After 40 days oil should become red, and it should get intensive smell. And, you can use it then. 


It is not complicated, and you'll be happy that you have it.



I'm linking up on those lovely parties.


UPDATE:
I have big problem!


I can't upload any new photo. 

We have 1 GB of free memory space on Picasa web-album, and I've used it. Now, if I try to upload new photo, I get message that I should buy extra memory space. (And, I can't delete any old photo in Picasa, in order to make space, because, it will be deleted from mine blog too. )

Do I really have to buy that memory space???

Is there any trick to avoid that???
