Hyssop Essential Oil
Lovely purple flowers which can be found on these two feet growing plants. Very popular with insects and bees. The plant has hairy, woody stems with slender green leaves.
The aroma is very similar to Rosewood and can be used as an ethical alternative to Rosewood.
Oils to Blend with
Hyssop blends well with virtually all herb and citrus oils. It also goes well with lavender, myrtle, bay and geranium.
The essential oil is steam distilled from the flowering tops and leaves.

As with all essential oils we recommend not using during pregnancy, however with Hyssop, there is no value judgement... simply do not use it in pregnancy. Hyssop is a very potent oil and people suffering from high blood pressure or epilepsy should avoid.
