OVERVIEW:

Consecrated for cleaning holy places in the Bible, hyssop has been deemed a "holy herb". For thousands of years, it has been used as a purifier and cleanser. It is a highly fragrant evergreen shrub related to the mint family. Hyssop has an intense clean, mildly sweet, mint-like taste and is used as a seasoning in foods and beverages but it’s best to use the herb in smaller quantities.

 

Hyssop, with its high-antioxidant and antiseptic properties, has been used to fight throat and respiratory infections, fatigue, muscle aches, and arthritis. It is often used as a household remedy, particularly as an expectorant and stomach tonic. Hyssop, with its dense nutrient base, supports a myriad of health benefits.
