Many uses for hyssop go back to ancient times. Spiritually it has been used to cleanse, purify and even by holy men to anoint persons repenting of sins. It has been used for meditation and rituals as well. Romans used it to combat infection and disinfect homes where people were sick. In 2003 a Brigham Young study showed it inhibited the growth of cancer cells (cervical, lung & skin).
