Hyssop is amazing on so many levels! Hyssop comes from the Hebrew word ezob, meaning good scented herb and holy herb. In ancient history it was said to be the herb that was used to apply blood over the door posts during the Exodus. Hence, it became a symbol of spiritual cleansing. It is considered a bitter herb and Hippocrates would prescribe hyssop for pleurisy and bronchitis.
Due to its warm, dry nature, it has been used to help strengthen and warm normal lung function, thinning thick phlegm, and settling the occasional raw throat. It has also been used as a tonic for the digestive system.
This is a beautiful oil to help with daily immune strengthening. It is often added to blends for those times when there is unwanted fluid buildup. This variety, var decumbens, has potent antiviral effects and may even be beneficial for herpes.
Note: Hyssop var decumbens is not to be confused with Hyssop officinalis that has a high level of ketones.
