The fresh herb is commonly used in cooking. As a medicinal herb, hyssop has soothing, expectorant, and cough suppressant properties. The plant also includes the chemicals thujone and phenol, which give it antiseptic properties. Its high concentrations of thujone and chemicals that stimulate the central nervous system can provoke epileptic reactions when taken in high enough doses. The oil of hyssop can cause seizures and even low doses (2–3 drops) can cause convulsions in children. It has been also used in the formulation of eye drops and mouthwash. Herb hyssop has also been observed to stimulate the gastrointestinal system.

玄関の前に植えてるヒソップ。2年前に株を買ったのだけど、毎年ぐんぐん成長する。ヒソップの花が咲くとハチが一日中たわむれてる。昨日はアゲハチョウも。ヒソップには抗菌作用もあり、咽喉や口内炎にも効くというから、花や葉を蜂蜜と酢につけておく。咳がでたり風邪気味のときには小さじ一杯の酢蜜をなめるといいらしい。ハルはヘルペスもよくでるから、今年は夏にたくさん摘んでおこう。
