Hyssop is used by herbalists for many reasons. My Native American friends LOVE it. It is thought to be beneficial for digestive complaints, liver and gallbladder conditions, intestinal pain, colic and loss of appetite. Phytochemical research tends to indicate this potential as well. It also has believed expectorant properties, meaning it's thought to be beneficial for respiratory ailments such as coughs, the common cold, infections, sore throat, and asthma. Its essential oil is also used in culinary arts. Other studies indicate its potential use as a natural muscle relaxor! See my citations towards the bottom of the page if skeptical.`


It's also used in cooking, and as an aromatic condiment. I postulate that it has aromatherapeutic potential because it smells godly. 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. Natives would produce a medicinal honey used topically for injuries, which I thought was really cool. Finally this alternative form of medicinal rejuvination also has the believed ability to stimulate the gastrointestinal system. From my experience in writing, this is similar to another favorite of mine called Mullein, which produces a constituent called "mucilage".


Plants that thrive near the water have often been harvested under or near a full moon for alleged "optimal potency". One can not logically conclude that this is neither folk lore alone or science, until a scientific investigation has taken place. I mean, there is such a thing as the farmers almanac right? In other words, I think the gravity of the moon has to do with it. This knowledge was passed down to me via some Native American friends that I love and cherish. Gardening by the moon has been practiced by farmers for centuries. If you're new to gardening, I suggest yoyu pick up a copy.


From my experiences, Hyssop is mostly effective in a tincture form, which consist of soaking plant material in alcohol. The term "spirit", when referring 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 the pharmacological phytochemicals. Again, this can appear to be lore but the moons gravity does effect the tides and perhaps there is a plausible reality behind this type of ideology. At any rate, I'm relaying the information to you all. I believe that Hyssop and Lemon balm go great together.


Although many people live their lives thinking that nature is insignificant and meaningless, in my opinion 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. These medicinal alkaloids produced within the botanical species are powered by the energy harnessed from phytosynthesis, and crafted using the blue prints programmed into its DNA! That's pretty far out and not one human scholar could ever compare with this type of skill and complexity when it comes to producing drugs/medicines from my viewpoint. I believe that religious scholars would agree with me.


Growing Hyssop

According to my Native American friends, you should plant your Hyssop 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. I recommend organic soil, preferably home made compost but if you can't that's ok. A lot of growers these days are using outdoor green houses to protect their crops from certain ailments and other issues I won't discuss. Producing seeds is the most important aspect of gardening in my opinion. I like to trim any brown off of the leaves so it doesn't spread but only if necessary. Make careful sure not to over water the plants. They do grow near is very moist areas so they can tolerate more than most. Baby plants shouldn't be put into direct sunlight if you're in the extreme southern United States until they are mature.


Making Your Own Compost


You can easily make a rich compost yourself to feed your Hyssop 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. Note that it takes TIME to do this!


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 preferred because ultimately, it will be better for the microbiome. Once your Hyssop 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. "Everything in life has it's purpose... find it's reason.. in every season.. forever" - Bob Marley.


The longer you use any herbal supplement 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. Keep in mind that I speak a lot of my opinion and consult with a health care provider before even considering use.
