Hyssop

“Cleanse me with hyssop and I will be clean.” HYSSOPUS OFFICINALIS:: Purifier. Expectorant. Lung, Sinus + Throat Medicine. Digestive. Nervine. Blood Cleanser. Anti-viral. Immune Tonic. Holy Herb. Hyssop is an easy to grow perennial and makes a beautiful purple hedge when in bloom. This year I made hyssop vinegars, shrub, and bitters for @tableandtonicnh and @thelocalgrocer :: I dried some bundles to use for tea and made some smudge sticks. The flower essence addresses guilt and shame based issues: unworthiness, self-sabotage, internal judgement, perfectionism. Hyssop flower essence is an especially good remedy for those who grew up in guilt-based religious systems
