Hyssop

Ps. 51:7 Says “Cleans me with hyssop, and I will be clean; wash me, and I will be whiter than snow.
            Why Hyssop?
Hyssop is known in herbal circles as The King of Herbs. The name hyssop stems from the Greek or Hebrew word adobe or ezob, meaning holy herb. It was used extensively to cleanse the human body, both inside and out.
            The hyssop plant can help with 81 different medical conditions, including asthma, cancer, insomnia, and colds. There are various preparations, but the most common is in extracts and teas. These are very effective in treating respiratory infections and congestion. One of the reasons for this is because of the anti-spasmodic action of the oil. It works well combating mucus, which makes it a good choice for those who suffer from bronchitis.
            Legend says that hyssop will cure a wound made by a rusty object because penicillin grows upon its leaves.

            Never is something mentioned in the Bible by accident; it always has a deeper meaning, one that goes to the foundation of the human condition, that makes better the soul.
