Hyssop is a member of the mint family native to southern Europe and Middle Eastern region. For thousands of years, the plant has been used in ceremonial cleansing rituals and hung in the home to purge evil. At one time, it was commonplace to plant a hyssop bush on the resting site of the newly departed to protect the remains from grave robbers.

Today, the plant is cultivated by beekeepers to ensure sweet, fragrant honey.

Dried and powdered hyssop is used to make poultices, tinctures and infusions for use as a mouthwash or eye wash.

Hyssop is a woody, upright, evergreen perennial in the mint family that naturally occurs in the Middle East and southern Europe. Because the plant produces attractive lavender blooms and is heat and drought-resistant, it is a popular garden ornamental and border plant.

For centuries, hyssop has been used for protection and purification. Due to its association with the hyssop vinegar given to Jesus during the Crucifixion and its role in spiritual purgation, hyssop is commonly called holy herb.

Hyssop is not used as much for culinary purposes as it once was, but the herb is still used to flavor beverages and spirits, including the French liqueur Chartreuse. Thujone, the same agent responsible for the plant’s minty flavor and aromatic profile, also lends antiseptic properties to topical preparations made from this herb.
