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

Wintergreen- Young Living

❄️ FUN FACTS ❄️

Wintergreen oil has a strong, penetrating aroma. The American Indians and early European Settlers enjoyed a tea that was flavored with birch bark or wintergreen. According to Julia Lawless, this has been translated into a preference for “root beer.”

Synthetic methyl salicylate is now widely used as a flavoring agent, especially in chewing gum and toothpaste, etc. In fact, the essential oil of Wintergreen is produced is such small quantities compared to the very extensive uses of the synthetic methyl salicylate. This is one reason it is SO IMPORTANT to verify the source of your essential oils, to ensure they contain true distilled plant soil and not a synthetic knock-off.

❄️ WHAT IT DOES❄️

This oil has a very powerful relief action, due to the high content of methyl salicylate. It’s greatest effect can be felt in the muscles and bones, but is well documented to bring relief to many other parts of the body.

Aromatically, it influences, elevates, opens and increases awareness in the sensory system
