Hyssop is renown from early times as a holy herb for cleansing and purification of temples and other holy places. Hyssop today is primarily used as a tea or as a gargle. It is often combined with horehound herb.

Directions: To make an infusion, pour one cup boiling water over 1 teaspoon of hyssop herb and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes. Sweeten with honey if desired.

Suggested Uses: Hyssop is used as a tea and is often combined with horehound. An effective, but more pleasant tasting tea, can be made using 1/3 hyssop herb, 1/3 horehound herb and 1/3 peppermint leaf, sweetened to taste with honey.

Hyssop herb is also sometimes use to make a gargle to sooth the throat.

As a bitter, it is said to promote the appetite.
