Hyssop gets its name from the Greek word azob, which means "holy herb". The plant has a long recorded history of use in cleansing rituals as described in several passages of the Holy Bible, including the significance of the plant being used to mark the doorways of Jewish homes in Egypt so that the plague might "pass over" its occupants.

The dried herb imparts a minty flavor to teas and other beverages, and is used as seasoning in Middle Eastern cuisine.

hyssop herb

Hyssop is a drought-resistant, evergreen, flowering plant that is native to southern Europe and the Middle East, where it has long been a symbol of purity and protection. In ancient Egypt, priests consumed the herb to purify their diet and used it to cleanse the people of leprosy.

As a member of the mint family, hyssop is highly aromatic and yields a pleasant, minty flavor to teas. The herb is also used to produce rinses for skin and hair, as well as mouth wash and eye drops.
