Hyssop, scientifically known as Hyssopusofficinalis, is a herbaceous plant of the genus Hyssopus, native the Southern Europe, the Middle East and the region surrounding the Caspian Sea.

Its name comes from the Hebrew “Esop”, often mentioned in the Bible. Hyssop has been known since ancient times: Hippocrates used it in cases of pleurisy and Dioscorides used it in respiratory diseases, especially asthma, coughs, bronchitis and the fluid retention combined with rue.

Its action is anticonvulsant, expectorant, sweating and sedative. Its anticonvulsant activity is due to the substance thujone, contained in its essential oil. Other substances contained in the essential oil of Hyssop are Flavonoids, Diosmin, Linoleic acid and Tannic acid up to 8%, volatile oils etc.

As an infusion it is mainly used as a nerve-stimulant to common flu due to its sweating properties, chronic catarrh, coughing and bronchitis. It can be combined with thyme, lavender, Cumaea, Agrimonia Eupatoria and Eucalyptus.

Its essential oil is also used for massages by dissolving 10 drops of hyssop oil in 20 ml of almond oil.

How to use:

Beverage: Add 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried herb in a cup of boiling water and leave it covered for 10-15 minutes. Then, strain and drink. Sweetener may be added, preferably honey.
