– Hyssopus officinalis
Forms of this plant are
common throughout N. America and Europe.
Folk remedies use hyssop as a sedative
and decongestant/expectorant. The herb is widely used for bronchitis and
non-chronic asthma. It’s very safe to use and does not cause
photosensitivity as many remedies tend to do. If taking a liquid
extract, use 2-4ml per day. If a tea infusion, no more than two cups per
day (and use honey to sweeten!).
