Because of its strong sort
of smell, Hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis) has a history of use as a cleansing herb. The
earliest reference to the plant dates back to the 7th century when it was used to clean
and improve the smell of kitchens and sickrooms. Native to central and southern Europe and
western Asia, it is also now found in temperate regions of North America.
Hyssop's minty leaves
and flowers can be used sparingly to flavor green salads, chicken soup, liqueurs, lamb
stew and poultry stuffing. Hyssop is easy to grow and is rarely bothered by pests or
disease. If it is kept clipped, Hyssop makes a good low hedge. Today herbalists continue
to reccomend the herb for its health benefits.
