A Witch's Garden: Hyssop

A Witch's Garden: Hyssop

(Hyssopus officinalis)

A woody base shrub with dark green leaves producing bunches of pink, blue or occasionally white flowers during the summer.

An excellent herb to use for purification and protection.

Hang a sprig of hyssop above your doorway to keep out negative energy. You can also tie a few hyssop sprigs together to make a besom to sweep out negative energy.

Add a handful of dried hyssop to your floor wash water to cleanse your home or add to your bathwater to heal and purify.

During the Dark Ages this herb was strewn on the floor in houses of those that were suffering from illness, you probably don’t want it all over your carpet but it works well in healing pouches and incense blends.

Purification, protection, healing
Ruling planet – Jupiter, Moon
