Hyssop (Za'atar)

Hyssop, different from most herbs, takes the form of a shrub and thrives best in summer conditions where the air is dry and the sun is abundant. Physically, hyssop can grow to approximately 60 cm and houses small bluish flowers toward the top of the plant. These flowers are produced on the upper branches of the hyssop plant during the summer. The leaves, which are small, narrow, and green in color, can produce a mint-like flavor.


Attracting both bees and butterflies to its savory aroma, hyssop has a number of helpful remedies for the body. The leaves are helpful in stress and tension relief.
