Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean: wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.Psalm 51:7, KJV

David understood the magnitude of his sin, experienced intense remorse, and became completely repentant. However, David understood that being repentant is not enough.
While we know that Jesus' blood is the ultimate spiritual cleanser, sometimes we find ourselves plagued with guilt long after we've been forgiven.
David understood this human tendency, which is why he cried to be purged with hyssop.
It was believed that the fragrance of hyssop was spiritually purifying – aiding in the cleansing of mind and body from sin – and repelling to the evil spirits that continuously remind us of past sins to magnify feelings of guilt.
Today, we can enjoy that same cleansing aroma by using therapeutic grade hyssop essential oil.
