Hyssop decumbens is a specialty aromatherapy oil, with low ketone content, suitable for most aromatherapy applications. The Certified Organic 'Common' Hyssop officinalis should be used only with understanding of its potency and where its use is preferred for particular recipes and uses. It contains natural molecules from nearly every class of compounds found in therapeutic essential oils, yet it is still quite gentle. It may be used from a nebulizing diffuser or on the accupressure/reflexology points of the feet associated with the illness.
Hyssop originated in southern Europe and comes from the Greek word hyssopus, meaning “good scented herb”. It is one of the bitter herbs mentioned in the Old Testament for ritual cleansing and baptism and its flowers and leaves have been highly valued since antiquity for their therapeutic properties. Because of its mild and non-toxic nature, it is well suited for children. Hyssop is listed in the current British Herbal Pharmacopoeia for use in use in bronchitis and the common cold. In Chinese medicine, Hyssop is described as hot and stimulating and is a tonic for Yang, or masculine Qi.1
