The decumbens variety of Hyssop is a powerful antiviral agent – effective for cold sores and most respiratory conditions – yet it is one of the mildest, best tolerated essential oils in aromatherapy. In fact, one of the most important features of this specific oil is its complete lack of toxicity and the absence of any irritant qualities. The plants harvested for this distillation – their precise botanical name is Hyssop off. var. montana intermedia – are cultivated near the small town of Banon in the high plains of Haute Provence. Hyssop decumbens has been a staple of French style aromatherapy ever since Pénoël and Franchomme popularized its use – noting that it is equally useful for children and adults.
