Hyssop (Hyssopus officinale) Pure Essential Oil - Aromatherapy - Therapeutic Quality 0.5 fl oz (15 ml)
Description: Hyssop essential oil is sweet and warm, with a very rich, herbaceous scent. Traditionally used in ancient times for spiritual rites such as cleansing, purifying, and forgiving sins, it has also been used for meditation. But the properties of Hyssop essential oil don’t stop there—it’s also great for the immune system. Hyssop strengthens the lungs, supports breathing, helps digestion, aids circulation and is also great against arthritis, anxiety, bruises, gout, high blood pressure, fatigue, and other infections. Interestingly enough, Hyssop is one of the bitter herbs mentioned in the Old Testament (used to purify the temples). Additionally, the Romans used Hyssop to protect themselves against the plague and to disinfect homes.
Hyssop essential oil blends especially well with Clary Sage, Geranium, Grapefruit, Lavender, Melissa, Orange, Rosemary, and Tangerine essential oils. Dilute with carrier oil for direct skin contact.
