Hyssop has been well known cross-culturally for centuries as a healing herb, and modern science is beginning to uncover the roots of this ancient wisdom. Mentioned twelve times in the Bible, and known as an herb for purifying sacred spaces and cleansing during plagues and times of widespread illness, Hyssop has been regarded as a symbol of purification throughout human history and was cultivated to keep its loving healing nearby. It was often used in the ritual cleansing of churches and thus was planted in monastery gardens.

Scent: Our Hyssop Essential Oil is a refreshing, sweet-spicy and eucalyptus-like oil. This oil’s top note is reminiscent of the pungent spiciness of fresh-picked rosemary; the middle note hits the senses sharply with a sweet and cool gust, powerful for clearing away physical and emotional blockages. The bottom note leaves a warm, herbaceous spice lingering in a pool of almost-caramel sweetness.
