How should I store St. John's Wort?

Store St. John's Wort at room temperature. Keep the product in a container that is shut from heat, moisture and light unless stated differently on the package label. Avoid storing it in the bathroom, near a sink or in damp location, since moisture can cause it to break down and not work properly. Make sure the product is not accessible to children, especially since most herbal products do not come in childproof containers. Do not keep medication that is outdated or not needed any longer.
