Hyssop is used by herbalists for many reasons. It is thought to be beneficial for digestive complaints, liver and gallbladder conditions, intestinal pain, colic and loss of appetite. Hyssop also has expectorant properties, meaning it's beneficial for respiratory ailments such as coughs, the common cold, infections, sore throat, and asthma. Hyssop oil is also used in culinary arts.
It's also used in cooking, as an aromatic condiment. Beekeepers prize Hyssop for its ability to produce a rich and aromatic honey. The herb contains thujone and phenol, giving it antiseptic qualities. Thujone is also found in Wormwood and Sassafrass, as well as many other plant species. Finally this alternative form of medicinal rejuvination also has the ability to stimulate the gastrointestinal system.
Plants that thrive near the water and effect the sub-conscious or human spirit have long been associated with the Moon itself. The term "spirit", when refering to alcohol, actually came from this paradigm. In the old days they would leave Hyssop soaked in alcohol under a full moon to assist in the extraction of various healing alkaloids. I believe that this ancient belief was based on the fact that the moons gravity tugs on our planet. Not so far fetched after all, eh?
The Moon effects the tides, and all of the water on our planet. Our bodies, and minds consist of mostly water. Throughout history, different cultures have observed nature and documented their observations. There is an ancient science behind the observation of nature. Although many people live their lives thinking that nature is insignificant and meaningless, that is not the case. It turns out nature is quite synchronized with itself and very much intelligent. Hyssop is a prime example of natural intelligence at work.
Cultivation of Hyssop
Plant your ancient medicine during the waxing phase of the moon cycle. This is after the new moon, during the early stages as it begins to grow larger every night. Wait until the moon is about 25% full to plant your seeds. Most of the time, if you place them in a room indoors that gets below 70 degrees F at night they will not do to well. Use an organic growing medium for sake of your health and the health of the planet and plant itself. Make sure the soil has plenty of airation, and utilize perlite to make this possible. Chemical fertilizers tend to poison the eath, and its water, which effects all life under the biosphere.
You can easily make a rich compost yourself to feed your medicinal plants. Use old fruit and vegetable odds and ends, or even just organic matter collected from nature. Save your grass clippings after cutting the lawn and mix them with some dirt. Try to find dirt that's darker in nature rather than raw sand. Add leaves, pine straw, tree bark, and even moss. Try to keep everything balanced in ratio. Allow this mixture to rot for several months before using. It should be dark and fluffy. If the consistency is too compact, add perlite for airation. Hardly anything will thrive in compact soil that lacks good airation.
This compost can also be turned into a liquid fertilizer that I like to call "Earth Tea". Just take a bucket full of it and add water. Then, cover it up with something like a plastic bag. Allow this mixture to sit in the sun and it will extract all of the vital minerals and nutrients into the water. Rain water is prefered because ultimately, it will be better for the microbiome. Once your plants need feeding you can use this Earth Tea to nurse them back to health. In time you'll learn to listen to your plants.

The longer you use an ally such as Hyssop, the more you should become attuned with its medicinal qualities. You will learn things about your medicine that you've never read or heard anywhere else. Just be conscious, and tune yourself into the sublte and sometimes hellaciously fierce properties of these natural gems. Healing is a never ending process. It's an innate as it is ancient. It is your birth right.
