Now that I am back from Africa, I have had a lot of catching up to do, and have been harvesting herbs, and making medicines. Hyssop is looking so gorgeous that I thought I would share with you, one of the hero herbs which I used over the past two years. Hyssop is a brilliant herb for Covid, with significant anti-viral, and anti-bacterial properties. It is great for lung infections because it both relaxes the spasms of the airways (making it excellent for asthma too), whist stimulating the lungs to expectorate the infected sticky phlegm.
I find it difficult to harvest my herbs, because they are covered in bees, who need their nectar, and I am aware that all living beings want to complete their life cycles. So, I negotiate terms with my plants, and agree to leave some parts of the plant untouched, whilst I can have some for my needs too.
