'Hyssop was regarded by both the Greeks and the Hebrews as a sacred herb, and is mentioned several times in the Old Testament. It was used to clean out temples and sacred places, quite literally by using bundles of the herb as a broom' - an excerpt from Aromatherapy an A - Z by Patricia Davis.
'Hyssop is antiinflammatory, antiseptic and a sedative. It helps bruises, dissolves boils and swellings and is recommended for rheumatism. This oil should be avoided in cases of epilepsy and also should not be used during pregnancy.' - an excerpt from The Essential Blending Guide by Rosemary Caddy.
