Essential Oil Spotlight: Hyssop


Hyssop essential oil is steam-distilled from the stems and leaves of the Hyssopus officinalis plant in the mint family.

Historically, it was used to prevent plague. It has many health-supporting properties, such as anticatarrhal, anti-infectious, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, diuretic, and sedative.

Its common primary use is to treat kidney stones. This oil may also be beneficial in treating anxiety, arthritis, asthma, bruises, colds, digestion, fatigue, gout, low blood pressure, rheumatism, scar tissue, stress, tonsillitis, and viral infections.

Hyssop affects the cardiovascular, nervous, and respiratory systems. The aroma may help stimulate creativity and meditation.

It can be used by applying it to the areas of concern or by diffusing it.

To learn more about hyssop essential oil and many other pure essential oils, see the Reference Guide for Essential Oils by Connie and Alan Higley.
