a safe & gentle decongestant & antiviral

the action of hyssop on the respiratory system is comparable to eucalyptus, however it's aroma is much softer and it's a safer choice for children and vulnerable individuals. 

Powerful Anti-Viral

Hyssop Decumbens is one of the best essential oils for viral infections. Use it to treat coughs, colds, chest congestion and bronchitis.

Reach for it when small children or vulnerable individuals are suffering from tight chest congestion or unproductive/spasmodic coughs.

Unlike Eucalyptus, Hyssop has a gentle, calming aroma that is less intense and 'medicinal' than many other oils with similar actions.

Hyssop breaks up hardened mucous and combats viral infection, making it ideal for most types of colds & chest infections. 

*Hyssop Officinalis should be avoided, stick to the Decumbens variety!
