Our friend Crunchy Betty.com has some great Home Remedies which includes this simple and gentle purifying Hyssop facial mask. It’s really very gentle, and incredibly simple (only 3 ingredients), and it’s a wonderful way to introduce yourself to hyssop. When you crush or grind the leaves/flowers, stop for a moment and inhale. Take it all in. Breathe the hyssop deep, and consider all the moments, throughout history, men and women have smelled that same smell and have walked away feeling purified, centered, cleansed. For full details on this recipe, please visit Crunchy Betty's Hyssop Facial Mask recipe.


  • 2 tsp dried hyssop
  • 2 tbsp full-fat (preferably lightly pasteurized and non-homogenized) milk (or water, almond milk, or coconut milk)
  • Approximately 1 tsp french green clay (or clay of your choice)


  1. Grind the hyssop into a powder using a mortar and pestle, spice grinder, or food processor.
  2. Heat the milk until just before it boils, and combine with the hyssop.
  3. Steep for at least 5 minutes or more (the longer you steep, the stronger it will be).
  4. Quickly stir in the clay until you have a consistency that just coats the spoon, but allows for pouring off otherwise.
  5. Apply to clean (no makeup) skin in a thin layer. Allow it to dry for 10 minutes (or until completely dry).
  6. Rinse well with warm water. Pat dry. Moisturize. Look alive
