Hyssop Essential Oil
The plant from which is made has many names. These include:
Hyssopus officinalis, Hysope, Hysope Officinale, Herbe de Joseph, Herbe Sacrée, Herbe Sainte, Hiope, Hisopo and Hissopo.
Wild As The Wind Hyssop Essential Oil is produced in France and is well loved by many. This is because it possesses a diverse array of benefits.
In particular, some of the constituents within Hyssop Essential Oil, as well as its energetic properties, may provide profound emotional release and support.
Because of the potential emotional benefits of Hyssop Aromatherapy Oil, it is as popular as two other essential oils, which are considered to elicit similar potential outcomes… These include
French Hyssop Essential Oil
This French Hyssop Essential Oil is particularly pleasing from an aromatic point of view.
*Wild As The Wind used to stock an English Hyssop Essential Oil, from a great UK based aromatherapy oil producer. However, it was aromatically inferior to this ethically sourced French Hyssop Essential Oil. Sadly, on this basis, the English Hyssop Essential Oil has been dropped from the Wild As The Wind essential oil range.

Hyssop Essential Oil Traditional Health Benefits
There have been many traditional applications for Hyssop Essential Oil. This is likely because it possesses a very complex array of constituents, making it potentially useful for many purposes.
In particular, Hyssop Essential Oil has been used to support lung and respiratory health.
In metaphysical terms, our lungs are the focal point of our heartbreak and grief. So, if we are able to physically and energetically improve the condition of our respiratory system, and more specifically our lungs, then profound emotional release can take place.
Once released from grief we are able to breathe new life, and new potential, back into our bodies.
The chronic elevation of stress is known to cause digestive problems. This maybe why Hyssop Essential Oil has been traditionally used to help heal digestive issues.
Stress comes in many forms, including chemical stressors, environmental stressors, (such as wireless technologies and other forms of radiation), psychological stressors and emotional stressors etc…

A lot of the emotional influences of Hyssop Essential Oil are due to its energetic properties.
Hyssop Essential Oil may help us eliminate trauma on every level of our being, regardless of how long the trauma has persisted.
It is thought that even long-term trauma yields to this vibrantly profound aromatherapy oil as long as the person using it is truly ready to be healed.
Hyssop Essential Oil may well offer us the light at the end of the tunnel even if we have suffered a lifetime of emotional anguish.
Some see it as the essential oil equivalent of redemption.
Hyssop Essential Oil For Energetic Healing
Energetic healing is also referred to as spiritual healing. Hyssop Essential Oil is thought to cleanse the soul of all that ails it.
Even the Bible mentions that Hyssop possesses the ability to cleanse the soul.
Hyssop Essential Oil is energising and protective from an energetic perspective.
It gives us space to express ourselves and it allows us to feel safe when doing so. Sometimes we need to express toxic build-ups before we can access our creative impulses. Once we have cleared ourselves emotionally we are able to gain inspiration from all manner of sources.
Ultimately, Hyssop Essential Oil helps us to dispel blame, guilt, doubt and judgement, after which only our divinity remains.
Hyssop Essential Oil & Digestive Health
The way in which Hyssop Essential Oil may help support digestive health is as follows:
As a stimulant, Hyssop Essential Oil may help stimulate digestion. This, in turn, may improve our metabolism & nutrient absorption.
Hyssop Essential Oil may also stimulate our nervous, circulatory, endocrine, & excretory systems, all of which contribute towards increased energy levels, improved emotional health and much stronger sense of well-being.

Hyssop Essential Oil Contraindication & Cautions
Hyssop Essential Oil is considered safe. However, there is insufficient research to support use during pregnancy and during breast feeding. It is, therefore, best avoided by mothers-to-be and young mothers.
It should also be avoided by those with high blood pressure and young children. Some sources state that Hyssop should not be used by children under the age of 2 years of age. Other sources state it should be avoided by children under the age of 6.
As a convulsant it can cause seizures & must be avoided by epileptics.
Hyssop is best diluted in a good carrier oil and applied topically to the abdomen to reap all of these benefits. A 0.3% dilution is ample.

Wild As The Wind Hyssop Essential Oil is of the Chemotype: pinochamphone. This is the chemotype which can very rarely prompt seizures in those who are prone.
*Hyssop Essential Oil of the Chemotype: Linalool will not predispose anyone to this potential risk.
*Pinocamphone can prompt convulsant outcomes at relatively moderate doses in humans who are predisposed to fits. This is because pinocamphone is a GABA antagonist, which means that it inhibits the action of gamma-Aminobutyric acid, aka GABA.
GABA is a neurotransmitter which influences brain function. Insufficient GABA is also implicated in clinical depression.
