There are times in our lives when we need to cry out like David did in Psalm 51. David realized he had done a grave thing in the sight of God. He prays to him for forgiveness and restoration. But the verse that stuck out at me was the beginning of verse 7, “Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean.”
I study herbs and their medicinal purposes. This is why I was curious about hyssop being used. I found out that hyssop was used in purification rituals to cleanse the unclean. It was only one of the items used.
We might not perform purification rituals anymore, but using hyssop to cleanse your body from the inside out is still being done today.
Hyssop tea can be used for colds, flu, nervous stomachs, indigestion, sore throats, sagging skin, wrinkles, cramps, muscle spasms, and respiratory problems. It can even lower blood pressure by flushing out toxins such as excess fats, water, and sodium.
Hyssop essential oil can relieve tension and stress. Combine it with a carrier oil and you can relieve viral infections, hay fever, eczema and circulatory problems.
My Experience with Hyssop
I normally use Hyssop to loosen mucus in my respiratory system when I have breathing problems due to a cold. Or in my case, when I eat too many mucus forming foods and I know I shouldn’t. Please pray for me. J
