I am currently in the process of migrating the content shared here to a series of new websites hosted at shirleytwofeathers.com.

As you explore this site, you may find links to a "page not found" instead of something cool and magickal. For this I apologize. I am very working hard behind the scenes to restore those pages along with a link to their homes on my new website where they can be viewed in full.

Hyssop Magick and Lore

Hyssop, (Hyssopus officinalis) is the herb that purifies your life.

Hyssop will:

  • Protect you and your home
  • Purify your altar or sacred space
  • Dispel depression


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.

Medicinal Uses:

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.
