Hyssop comes from a Hebrew word “ezob” meaning “holy herb“. Spiritually, it has been used to cleanse, purify and even to “forgive sins”. It has been used for meditation and rituals as well. Hyssop oil contains 20-40% monoterpenes and almost 50% ketones. Monoterpenes awaken information in the DNA of the cell. Ketones are known to be calming emotionally.
