Hyssop

Hyssop- Young Living

🌺 FUN FACTS 🌺

The perennial plant hyssop is native to the Mediterranean region and was considered a holy plant in biblical times.

The name, Hyssop,  actually means “holy herb.” It was used in rituals, teas, wound healing, and baths. David refers to hyssop in Psalm 51 as part of his repentant lament:

Cleanse me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.

During the time of the Romans, this herb was used against the plague, as a disinfectant and for treatment of minor infections. In some parts of the world, it had a spiritual function, and was believed to purify and “forgive sins.”1 Christianity held hyssop in high regard — the herb was cited as a symbol of baptism and reconciliation.2 In other religions, it is associated with purification. This is largely due to the miasma theory, the belief that scent chased away illness. Although that  isn’t exactly the mechanism of action, the idea was there and the application was effective.

When steam-distilled, the plant produces a very potent essential oil

🌺  WHAT IT DOES 🌺 

Hyssop has been used since ancient times for nearly every ailment under the sun, from spiritual and emotional cleansing to boozing immunity and restoring health to patients. It helps to regulate menstrual flow, blood pressure and perspiration, as well as opening the airways, healing the skin and boosting immunity. Emotionally, hyssop has been said to clear the mind, alleviate nervous tension and generally overcome fatigue. This energy-inciting quality is one reason it has been administered to patients as it helps them overcome lethargy from being sick. Sometimes the best remedy is to get a patient moving again.

Hyssop has been studied intensively for it’s powerful properties, namely the way it interacts with viral cells and “disarms them,” The Bible also refers to hyssop and other plants as “bitter herbs” which were used to stimulate digestion and calm the digestive tract. Adding a few drops to a carrier oil can do wonders to promote relaxed muscles in any part of the body.

Emotionally and spiritually, Hyssop has long been used as a cleansing and purifying oil. The ancient Hebrews used it to chase away evil spirits. Hyssop was the plant the Lord commanded that the Israelites use to paint the lamb’s blood over their doorposts to ward off the Angel of Death in Egypt. See Exodus

Ravintsara- Young Living

🌺 FUN FACTS 🌺

Ravintsara (Ravensara), sometimes called clove nutmeg, is a member of the laurel family. It originated in Madagascar but has a camphorous aroma and qualities similar to eucalyptus. The people of Madagascar refer to Ravintsara essential oil as The Oil That Heals  because Ravintsara is considered another universal oil like Lavender.

🌺 WHAT IT DOES 🌺

It is known to be highly supportive of the adrenal glands as well as respiratory function, healthy bladder function, promotes skin healing, and supports the nerves and the liver. Ravintsara is an overall oil, useful for almost anything, particularly in supporting the immune and respiratory system.

Emotionally, Ravintsara has a mood elevating and stimulating effect, like Rosemary

🌺 IDEAS FOR USE – TOPICAL/ AROMATIC 🌺

• Use at the first sign of immune system compromise to boost immune support

• Add a few drops to a foot bath when you start feeling under the weather

• Use Ravintsara alone or blend with Eucalyptus, Lavender, Tea Tree or Thyme

• Deep inhale from the bottle or put a drop in the palm of hands and cup your hands over your nose

• Diffuse for respiratory support, daytime or night

• Mix with V-6 or another carrier oil and apply topically on location for skin healing support

• Mix into a massage blend to soothe muscles and joints

• Add a few drops to your bath

• Combine ravintsara essential oil with rosemary, rosewood, or tangerine essential oil to combat feelings of apathy. These “pick-me-up” essential oils will help increase energy and mental concentration.

• Use ravintsara in combination with frankincense, ginger or grapefruit essential oils to help your mood. Ravintsara essential oil can sweeten or enhance the other oils it is mixed with, so try using more than one oil if you want to try something new.
