Hyssop is considered a fine herbal expectorant and antispasmodic and has been highly effective in treating respiratory ailments, alleviating the heavy, congested feeling in the head and chest. As an herbal decongestant, it helps to reduce and get rid of phlegm, particularly with chronic congestion and unproductive coughs. It has been a time-honored remedy to ease asthma, bronchitis, coughs, chesty colds and stuffy nose. Hyssop also soothes mucous membranes in the respiratory system and eases hoarseness and sore throat.
As a cathartic and colon cleanser, Hyssop's laxative properties help to clear the body of toxins in the intestinal tract. At the same time, it soothes the mucous lining of the bowel, while clearing mucus from the intestines. Hyssop has also been used to expel worms.
Hyssop's diaphoretic actions further promote cleansing the body of toxins through the skin by promoting perspiration and sweating, which also helps to lower fevers. The herb is also thought to clear the bladder and kidneys.
As an antiviral, Hyssop combats herpes simplex virus and treats cold sores.
Hyssop is thought to strengthen the digestive system and tone the stomach while soothing its mucous lining. It eases indigestion, improves the appetite and relieves flatulence and "griping" (the sharp pains and grumbling of the bowels often associated with laxatives).
When used externally, Hyssop helps to kill body lice. Its topical anti-inflammatory properties are beneficial for muscular rheumatism and for healing bruises and cuts promptly, as well as easing the pain of insect stings and bites. Hyssop makes a fine gargle for sore throat.
Hyssop is a gently relaxing nerve tonic, suitable for nervous exhaustion when linked with overwork and anxiety or depression. It is thought to be helpful for easing feelings of grief and guilt and a tonic to strengthen the immune system and improve the body when in a weakened condition. The oil has been known to increase mental alertness.
Hyssop Herb should not be taken for more than two weeks without advice of a physician. Excessive use (many times the recommended dosage) may cause seizures. Pregnant women, those who suffer from epilepsy or from high blood pressure should avoid Hyssop.
