Hyssop Essential Oil (Hyssop officinalis) is a biblical oil that was also sacred to ancient Greeks, has a fresh, woody scent that is slightly sweet and is noted for its purifying properties. Hyssop has an approximate ORAC of 209,167 (TE/L). TE/L is expressed as micromole Trolox equivalent per liter.
Historical Data: While there is some uncertainty that Hyssopus officinalis is the same species of plant as the hyssop referred to in the Bible, there is no question that Hyssop officinalis has been used for almost a millennium for its support to the body's natural defenses. It has also been used to support the respiratory system.
The fourteenth chapter of Leviticus, 14:54-56, describes a blend of the essential oils of 50% cedarwood and 50% hyssop for various skin issues such as itches, scales, scall, risings, swellings, scabs, rashes, lesions, eczema, pimples, eruptions, skin spots, and/or any "leprous" disease, which could include dermatitis, psoriasis, skin cancers, and even leprosy, itself. The Biblical remedy suggests applications of the oil blend to the right ear, the right thumb, and the right big toe for skin issues which are all emotional reflex points for the right brain through which emotional issues can be resolved and released. In other words, use the oils to address the core of the condition, rather than treating just the symptom.
Fragrance: stimulates creativity and meditation
