“Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and on both sides of the doorframe. None of you shall go out of the door of your house until morning.” Exodus 12:22
“Purge me with hyssop and I shall be clean. Wash me and I shall be whiter than snow… Blot out all my iniquities. Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:7,9-10
Today’s oil: Hyssop
Individually, this fabulous oil is $25.25 for a 5ml, if you have a wholesale account. This is also one of the oils in the Twelve Oils of Ancient Scripture collection. ($225.25 wholesale)
My Essential Oils Pocket Reference says under “Uses: Respiratory infections/congestions, parasites (expelling worms), viral infections, and circulatory disorders.”*
How we use it:
This is a some-what new to us oil so I haven’t used it often, but it’s the one I reach for when congestion is coming on or viral things are going around. This time of year, heading into the colder months, I’m glad to be armed with this ancient oil (as well as many others, like RC, and Oregano) when those wintertime sicknesses try to get us down.
If you know me, you know I’m a fan of reading. My current favorite book that I just can’t stop talking about is The Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple by Stewart. I keep telling people, who probably aren’t that interested in chemistry alllll I’m learning!
Now, I’ll share some with you:
“Phenolics cleanse receptor sites. Sesquiterpenes delete faulty information in cellular memory. Monoterpenes restore or awaken the correct cellular information. By these three processes, the roots of disease or conditions can be eliminated at its cellular source and result in a permanent healing – sometimes instantaneously.”
And maybe you already guessed it? Hyssop has a therapeutically effective proportion of all three of these! In one awesome little oil you can find a great balance of phenolics, sesquiterpenes, and monoterpenes.
Other oils that fall in this therapeutically effective range: tea tree, marjoram, blue tansy, lavender and roman chamomile. (See full list of these on table Sixty-Eight, pg 586 of Stewarts Chemistry of Essential Oils Made Simple book.) If you have the Everyday Essential Collection than you already have Lavender! I think these sounds like oils to add to my to wear-one-of-these-each-day oils!
