Hyssop Essential Oil - a Bible Healing Oil

Hyssop essential oil may be beneficial in the releasing and cleansing of negative emotions – the root of most wrong action.

Then shall the priest command to take for him…hyssop… And the priest shall take some of the log of oil, and pour it into the palm of his own left hand: And the priest shall dip his right finger in the oil that is in his left hand, and shall sprinkle of the oil with his finger seven times before the LORD: And of the rest of the oil that is in his hand shall the priest put upon the tip of the right ear of him that is to be cleansed, and upon the thumb of his right hand, and upon the great toe of his right foot, upon the blood of the trespass offering: And the remnant of the oil that is in the priest's hand he shall pour upon the head of him that is to be cleansed: and the priest shall make an atonement for him before the LORDLeviticus 14:4,15-18, KJV

plant that hyssop essential oil is distilled fromThere is a scientific basis for hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis) being a purifying substance.

According to David Stewart Ph. D. in Healing Oils of the Bible, hyssop essential oil has constituents that can actually reprogram the DNA where our sinful tendencies are stored. Isn't that exciting?!

It is interesting to note that, according to the auricular emotions chart of Vita Flex therapy, the point for guilt is the top of the right ear. Similarly, the right thumb and big toe are the nerve ending points for the pineal gland – the spot where the emotions are stored.

In our scripture verse, we see that these are the same areas that priest touched in the cleansing ritual. It is speculated that this practice aided in emotional cleansing.

Hyof 001 pvdRepentance is essential for complete healing.

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.
