Hyssop Health advisor Dr. Grant Jeffrey, chairman of Frontier Research Publications, led the company’s Scriptural research on the plant referred to as hyssop in the Old Testament to determine the uses and benefits of the herb as noted by the Scriptures. This Scriptural research would help Hyssop Health find the ancient herb’s modern-day name and potential for health and wellness uses.
Dr. Jeffrey found that the greatest Jewish rabbi, Maimonides, 1200 AD, clearly identified ezob – Hyssop with the plant Marjoram, also known as Origanum. The Scriptures describe “hyssop” – ezob – as growing on or near the walls of buildings. Hyssop has been commonly known as origanum vulgare or wild oregano for many centuries.
