How to harness Hyssop's magical properties:
To remove negativity, tie a bunch of hyssop branches together to create a symbolic broom. Then use it to sweep your home, removing any negative energy or spirits.
You can also add about a half a cup of Hyssop tea to your mop water to cleanse your house To make the tea, add two tablespoons of dried Hyssop to two cups of boiling water and allow the mixture to steep for about ten minutes before straining it.
Finally you can use a small bunch of Hyssop leaves to sprinkle water over objects or around rooms to bless them.
Add a pinch of dried Hyssop to your bathwater as part of a ritual of healing and purification, especially if you have been feeling depressed.
When burned as incense, dried Hyssop will raise the spiritual vibrations of your home and release the energy of protection.
Hyssop tea will settle an upset stomach and ease the pain of arthritis and rheumatism. A poultice made out of the leaves will heal wounds and help the discoloration from bruises to fade more rapidly.
