Apothecary Mama Teaching on Hyssop ~ A Plant of the Bible

  1. 1. HYSSOPAnd God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. Genesis 1:29

  3. 3. Hyssop A Plant of the Bible Total KJV Occurrences: 10 Exo_12:22, Lev_14:4, Lev_14:6, Lev_14:49, Lev_14:51-52 (2), Num_19:6, Num_19:18, 1Ki_4:33, Psa_51:7 The Precious Oils & Plants of the Bible: Ancient Secrets ~ Modern Uses by Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
  4. 4. The Hebrew Word Picture for Ezob ~ Hyssop link can be found at the end of this presentation.
  5. 5. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson Hyssop Strong’s Word H231 'êzôb (ay-zobe‘) Probably of foreign derivation; hyssop: - hyssop. 5
  6. 6. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson Etymology: The name “hyssop” comes from the Greek word ὕσσωπος “hussopos” and the Hebrew word “ezob”, both mean “the holy herb”, thus describing its use in the Bible as a plant that is associated with holiness, cleanliness and purity in sacred places, and people. With the Arabic word “zūfā” there clearly isn’t any practical identification of what the plant really was.
  7. 7. Etymology: Officina, a noun, is a Medieval Latin word derived from the noun opificina that was later shortened to officina. It referred originally to a workshop, later to a monastic storeroom, then to an herb store and finally to a pharmacy. The adjective, officinalis, in all of its declined forms is used in botanical Latin to mean “used in medicine” in the sense of used in the practice of medicine. Officinalis, officinale, officinarum, all adjectives, are the same word with different endings and they all mean used in medicine.
  8. 8. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson Hyssop is the most puzzling of all plants named in the Bible. Much has been written about hyssop but the disagreement to the real plant continues, even to this day. Celsius wrote about 18 different plants that possibly could be hyssop ~ it only took 42 pages for him to explore which plants that could have been hyssop, and that was in 1745. Celsius, O. Hierobotanicon, sive de plantis sacrae scripturae dissertationes breves 2 volumes 1188 pages Upsala 1745 & 1747
  9. 9. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson One theory is that the hyssop of the Old Testament readers and non-botanical writers as well as Linnaeus, who named hyssop officinalis L., is the common garden herb we know today as “hyssop”. The problem with this plant is that it isn’t native to the Holy Land, or Egypt; only to Europe. The plant doesn’t fit the requirements found in the Bible in I Kings 4:33.
  10. 10. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson And he (Solomon) spoke of trees, from the cedar tree that is in Lebanon even unto the hyssop that springs out of the wall: he spoke also of beasts, and of fowl, and of creeping things, and of fishes. I Kings 4:33 Solomon’s botanical knowledge and references to plants from woody trees, to herbs, to flowers can be found extensively in the Bible. The GNB writes the thought of this verse in a clearer fashion “He spoke of trees and plants, from the Lebanon cedars to the hyssop that grows on walls”.
  11. 11. Some of the plants thought to be hyssop includes caper, sorghum, mint, oregano, sage, rosemary, savory, thyme, or the marjoram plant?
  12. 12. The uses of hyssop in the Bible varied. • In the sprinkling of the blood soaked hyssop before applying to the lintel and side-posts of the door in the Passover ritual. Exodus 12:22 • In the ceremonial cleansing of the leper where hyssop was dipped in the blood of a sacrificed bird, and a living bird, cedar and scarlet. Leviticus 14:4,6 © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
  13. 13. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson • The same ritual followed in homes where a fungus, wood-dry rot or mildew was found. Leviticus 14:49-52 • It was thrown into the fire when the red heifer was offered as a burnt sacrifice during Temple times. Numbers 19:6
  14. 14. • The sealing of the Covenant at Sinai is described here with hyssop, blood, water and scarlet, although in Exodus we don’t read the same details. Commentators tell us these details aren’t found in Exodus 5 or 24 and the mention of them in Hebrews may possible be a summary of the events. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
  15. 15. In Jewish tradition, and Scripture, we read how hyssop is related to pride. It is symbolized by the majestic cedar of Lebanon and the lowly hyssop, which represents modesty and humility. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
  16. 16. The symbolism of the humility of hyssop versus the cedar helps us understand the plea of King David in Psalm 51. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
  17. 17. This is the Psalm that David cried out after his sin with Bathsheba. The most quoted verse of this psalm is found in Psalm 51:7 “Purge me with hyssop, and I will be clean: wash me and I will be whiter than snow. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
  18. 18. David’s prayer for forgiveness can be understood like the plea of the leper also cleansed by hyssop. “I was proud and haughty like the cedar, and now I beseech you to make me humble like this hyssop with which I ask to be cleansed.” Levitcus 14:2-4 It is important to point out that it wasn’t the “hyssop” or “cedar” that cleansed, it was in the mercy and grace that God gave David when he repented and asked forgiveness. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
  19. 19. Apothecary Mama’s Precious Oils publications and teachings often point to Biblical accounts where the ancient plants are written about. The understanding of the plants character and how it can be used in our lives becomes more apparent. This is true for “hyssop” and the story of Passover (Pesach) as this is the first occurrence of the word “hyssop”. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
  20. 20. Hyssop was often gathered in bunches and used as a brush or sprinkler for purification rituals, as it was in the story of Passover. The branches of many of the plants thought to be hyssop have straight, slender, leafy stalks with small heads. Several stalks grow from one root which allows breaking a pieces off more suitable, especially for sprinkling and the leaves hold water until shaken. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
  21. 21. In the story of the Passover we find it wasn’t water on the hyssop, it was the blood of the slain lamb. And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning. Exodus 12:22 © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
  22. 22. In the New Testament, a sponge soaked in sour wine or vinegar was stuck on a branch of hyssop and offered to Yeshua (Jesus) on the cross (John 19:29). Some varieties of the hyssop plant branches can be as tall as 2 feet and would indicate that the cross was near street level and not on a high hill as we often think. Alternatively, many Bible scholars tend to agree that the hyssop of Crucifixion is sorghum. Sorghum Photo is from Flora of Israel Online
  23. 23. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson George Edward Post thinks of all varieties the Origanum maru, a special variety of marjoram which favors terrace walls and rocks, is the most probable to be the Biblical Hyssop. Hyssop is identical with the Arabic zat`ar, a name applied to a group of aromatic plants of the mint family as marjoram and thyme are.
  24. 24. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson In the botanical world today writers agree with Post that Biblical hyssop is Origanum syriacum, a/k/a/the true hyssop and Majorana syriaca (also Origanum maru, which is the hybrid). Biblical hyssop is often known by its common name, Lebanese Oregano. Other names include Egyptian Marjoram, Syrian Hyssop, Ezov or Ezob, White Oregano and Za’atar.
  25. 25. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson Hyssop/oregano/marjoram is a wild plant that grows abundantly in the mountains of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Israel. Due to increased demand for the herb, it is now being cultivated. You will find the wild plant among dwarf shrubs on stony grounds throughout Israel, and it is one of the plants growing out of the Western Wall in Jerusalem.
  26. 26. A fun fact about marjoram is that all marjoram's are oregano’s, but not all oregano’s are marjoram's. One author tells us that more than fifty species, in six plant families, that are in the “oregano” family. All of these writings adds to the confusion of what the hyssop plant really was (and is). © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
  27. 27. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson “Hyssop Tea” is another name for the herb. In Spanish, hyssop is “hisopo” while in Italian it is “issopo.” The French call hyssop “hyssope” and “herbe sacree” where as in German the herb is “ysop.”
  28. 28. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson In the “Language of Flowers”, hyssop symbolizes cleanliness and sacrifice. The symbolism is associated with the ancient usage of the plant for ritual cleansing of holy places.
  29. 29. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson Ancient Secrets Hyssop Herb Plants Hyssop and Marjoram are interchangeable for this study.
  30. 30. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson In the Mediterranean region marjoram was used in healing and cooking, as it is still today. The Greeks called marjoram “joy of the mountain” and used it to make wreaths and garlands for weddings and funerals. It was symbolically was given to newlyweds as token of good fortune During the Middle Ages, European ladies used marjoram in nosegays (tussie-mussies).
  31. 31. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson Theophrastus tells us in his book, Enquiry into Plants, Volume II ~ Concerning Odours, that sweet marjoram was used in perfumery. Theophrastus' Enquiry into Plants was first published in 1926. It is now in the public domain pursuant to the 1978 revision of the U. S. Copyright Code, since the copyright expired in 1954 and was not renewed at the appropriate time, which would have been that year or the year before. This books is full of insight of ancient plants. The leaves of hyssop were a strewing herb for dirt floors. Strewing herbs were important for pest control, keeping snakes out and keeping the house smelling fresh.
  32. 32. A tea made from fresh hyssop/marjoram leaves was thought to cure a cold and treat bronchitis. Hyssop tea soothe the nerves and is calming. Hyssop provokes menstruation. Hyssop is in the mint family (Labiatae/Lamiaceae). Chewing fresh leaves soothed toothaches.
  33. 33. Another ancient use of this plant was as an insecticide, insect repellent, and pediculicide (lice eradicator). Extracts of the hyssop plant have been used as a fragrance in soaps and perfumes, and to flavor liqueurs, sauces, puddings, and candies. European women are said to sniff hyssop flowers pressed in their psalm books to help them stay awake during church services.
  34. 34. Making a poultice by macerating hyssop leaves and blending with olive oil into a paste and then gently rubbing it into the skin would ease rheumatism, sprains and headaches. Today these uses for hyssop/marjoram are still employed in Lebanon, Syria and other countries in the Middle East region of the world.

Marubiin is a strong expectorant. Pinocarriphone is toxic, and the volatile essential oil of Hyssop Officinalis L. can cause epileptic seizures.

  45. 45. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson We are going to discuss four “hyssops” that are readily available as essential oils. It is extremely important to understand the difference of hyssop varieties when using the essential, volatile oils. Some hyssop oils are considered safe, and others have concerns because of their chemical constituents.
  46. 46. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson Hyssopus officinalis L. (common hyssop) Verses Hyssopus officinalis Decumbens (specialty hyssop)
  47. 47. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson Hyssopus officinalis L. is considered by many leading aroma therapists to be toxic. Common hyssop essential oil Hyssopus officinalis L. is high in ketones which can cause dermal and other health issues. WARNING: Ketones can be toxic!! Do not use during pregnancy, children or the elderly. Seizures often occur when this variety of hyssop is used. Apothecary Mama doesn’t use this variety of hyssop essential oil because of the ketones.

Hyssop officinal L. This chemo type is so common it is normally referred to simply as ‘hyssop oil’.

  49. 49. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson Apothecary Mama suggests the gentler, and safer Hyssopus officinalis decumbens. You will pay slightly more for this variety, but it is a safer essential oil compared to the common variety.

  62. 62. http://ww2.odu.edu/~lmusselm/plant/image.php?type=tn430&id=5892 © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson Culinary Uses
  63. 63. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson Hyssop had more culinary uses in days gone by than it does today. Medieval monks made soups and sauces with it. Its peppery, bitter flavor disguised spoiled meats, and it was thought to aid the digestion of fat. Try small quantities of the chopped fresh leaves or flowers in broths or sprinkled in salad.
  64. 64. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson Hyssop honey, by contrast, is sweet-smelling and delicious; it is said to retain the anti-flatulent properties of the herb. The Romans made an herbal wine of hyssop. Hyssop in still used today in liqueurs and is an important constituent of Chartreuse and Benedictine.
  65. 65. In the Middle East hyssop is a popular herbal mixture of spices. You will find it as Zatar (herb only) or Za'atar (seasoning). The zatar herb can be used alone as a loose tea. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
  66. 66. There is a wide variety of Za’Atar herbal seasonings. Most contain the same ingredients of toasted, white sesame seeds, ground sumac, wild oregano (Origanum syriacum (o. maru) and salt. Za’atar is used on meats and vegetables. © Precious Oils Up On The Hill® ~ Apothecary Cynthia Hillson
