History: The name itself is generally traced back, nearly unchanged, to the Hebrew and the Greek, the former translating to “Ezov” and the latter translating to “Hyssopos”.

It was recorded in the Book of Exodus that, on the night of Passover, hyssop would be used to apply the blood of lambs sacrificed onto doorposts. Why? Hyssop is spiritually cleansing, a help for focusing the mind in meditation, a purifier from sin, addictions and destructive habits; and a repeller of evil spirits. Mixed with the lambs blood, the aromatic oil protected the Israelites from the death angel.

Its purgative properties were also given a mention with in the Book of Psalms. Just before his death, Jesus of Nazareth on the cross was offered a sponge soaked in either vinegar or sour wine, with the sponge stuck onto a hyssop branch. Why? Crucifixion is death by slow suffocation as a person's lungs gradually fill up with fluid. Breathing the scent of hyssop may have been offered as a mercy to those dying by crucifixion to help ease their congestion and provide some relief both physically and emotionally. Both Mark and Matthew made mentions to this occurrence, though references to the plant were only made in the general sense, which is typically translated into “stick” or “reed.”

Modern Uses: Monoterpens reprogram miswritten information in the DNA and so promotes permantent healing at a cellular level. Hyssop has been used to relieve anxiety, arthritis, asthma, respiratory infections, parasites, sore throats, cuts and wounds. It metabolizes fat, increases perspiration, detoxifies, and is emotionally balancing. Hyssop essential oil comes from the Lamiaceae family which is the same family that Basil, Marjoram, Oregano, Thyme and Peppermint essential oils come from.

Scriptures: Exodus 12:22; Leviticus 14:4, 6,49, 51-52; Numbers 19:6, 18; I Kings 4:33; Psalms 51:7; John 19:29; Hebrews 9:19.

Known and Possible Drug Interactions: Because hyssop is thought to lower the threshold of seizures, it may theoretically interact with anti-epileptic medicines. It may interact additively when taking an anti-hyperglycemic drug for altering blood sugar. For this reason, those with diabetes or hypoglycemia are advised to proceed with caution and in any others who may be taking supplements, drugs or herbs in order to affect their blood sugar.

A qualified professional in healthcare may also monitor the serum glucose levels and adjust the medication as necessary. A pharmacist may also perform this task.

Ursolic acid and oleanolic acid, which are constituents of the hyssop herb, are known to contain recognized cholesterol lowering, or anti-hyperlipidemic, properties, meaning that they may additively interact with other drugs for anti-hyperlipidemia.

Other Serious Interactions: Early studies that tested various usages of crude extracts produced from hyssop have shown that there was antiviral activity against both HIV-1 and herpes simplex. One may then conclude that hyssop, theoretically, may additively interaction with other antiviral medications.

Hyssop is found in a decoction of qingre huoxue, leading scientists to believe is may additively interact with glucocorticoids. Hyssop is thought to possess activity with regards to immunomodulatory activity, proposing the thought that it may additively interact with immunosuppressant medicines.

There are many easy ways to use essential oils. Add a few drops to a bowl of hot water and inhale for a quick and simple remedy for coughs, stress, and fatigue. Use a nebulizer for a potent medicinal effect; nebulizing is the most effective method for retaining the healing properties of the aroma molecules.
