Hyssop is used traditionally in coughs, colds, bronchitis and chronic catarrh. It is an expectorant, sedative and anti-spasmodic so it can calm the chest and aid breathing when congested. It combines well with white horehound in the treatment of coughs and chest problems, and with peppermint for the common cold.
The Greek Hippocrates recommended hyssop to treat bronchitis.
