Oil Summary: Organic Hyssop oil is extracted from the organic plant’s dried leaves and flowers via steam distillation. Organic Hyssop Essential Oil is famous for containing nearly every type of chemical compound commonly found in essential oils. It is, therefore, one of nature’s strongest antiviral and antibacterial agents. The primordial cultures were not wrong in identifying the medicinal properties of Hyssop. The chemical breakdown of the essential oil reveals many health benefits like respiratory problems, treating wounds and cuts, improving blood flow, stimulating body systems, removing toxins, relaxing muscles, promoting healthy skin. Hyssop oil is derived from a herbaceous plant of the genus Hyssopus, which is native to the regions of Southern Europe, the Middle East, and Northern Africa. It grows to around two feet in height and is identifiable by its narrow dark-green leaves and royal blue flowers. The flowers are highly aromatic, and often attract bees and butterflies.

Contraindication: When used in moderation, Hyssop is considered safe for most people. However, like many other essential oils, applying it undiluted can result in allergic reactions and skin irritations. Even after diluting it with a carrier oil, perform a patch test by first applying a drop to a small, insensitive area and observe for any adverse effects. For internal use, such as in the treatment of digestive problems, only use the highest-quality oil brands. While the effects of Hyssop on blood circulation can be beneficial to people with low blood pressure, people with a history of hypertension should avoid this essential oil. Moreover, it’s not safe to use Hyssop oil during pregnancy because it might trigger uterine contractions and ultimately lead to a miscarriage. Little is known about the safety of Hyssop during breastfeeding, so seek expert advice first. When buying Hyssop oil off the counter, inquire about the chemical composition. Remember, high pinocamphone levels can make the oil toxic and increase its convulsive effects. Hyssop should be kept away from kids, and should not be used on children under five years old as it may cause fever, convulsions, and seizures.
