anise hyssop tincture
Fresh Flowering Tops, folk preparation in organic cane alcohol
Contrary to their name, Anise Hyssop is neither an Anise nor a Hyssop but a mint family plant native to North America. Traditionally, Anise Hyssop is used for both respiratory illness and as a wash for poison ivy. Anise Hyssop offers us a simultaneously grounding and clarifying sensation and is uplifting to the spirits. They have a uniquely licorice-like flavor and are supportive to both the digestive and respiratory system, likely due to the antiviral properties of its essential oil. Aromatic and warming, Anise Hyssop tincture can be added to hot water for a supportive tea when congestion or fever are present . They can also be incorporated in a bitters blend for stimulating appetite and calming the nervous system in preparation for a meal.
