Hyssop, Cut (Hyssopus Officinalis)

$2.50

Widely known as an ingredient in men`s cologne or as a component in the French liquor of Chartreuse, Hyssop, or Hyssopus Officials in Latin, is also used to produce the green coloring for which Absinthe is famous. Also within the culinary arts, it is sometimes used to add a bitter, minty flavor to soups. Outside of the culinary field, Hyssop is perhaps most famed for its repeated mention in the Old Testament, where it is written of frequently as part of rituals, particularly in seeking the protection of God. Perhaps the most famous example of this would be where it was said to be used in painting the doors where Hebrew families dwelled to protect them from Moses` plague that claimed every firstborn son of Egypt. Hyssop was also said to be used by the priests of the Temple of Solomon for purification and protection rites; a tradition that lives on among Catholic priests, who use it in the ceremonial aspergillum that they use to sprinkle holy water. More modern herbalists portray Hyssop as an expectorant, which can be quite useful in treating coughs and other such illnesses of the lungs. It has also been shown to be a diaphoretic, used in the stimulation of sweating, and a carminative, used for expelling gas from the stomach and intestines to help relieve abdominal pain or flatulence. Hyssop is also frequently used in combination with Horehound for these purposes.
