Spice of the week: Hyssop

Hyssop, the spice coming from the Hyssopus officinalis, is an ancient spice that was referred to in the Bible. Reason enough to feature it on our blog.

Its mention in the Bible is no coincidence; the scientific name Hyssopus comes from the Hebrew word ezob, which was a name used for sacred and cleansing plants. It can be used to remedy infections of the throat and tonsils, and its leaves have five times more vitamin C than a lemon! Ideal to build up resistance in winter, if you ask us.
