I am an athlete and it is very common that I get severe muscle contractions in any of my body parts. But, when I got this oil, I was much relieved. This site is simply awesome as it renders hundred percent natural oils and I say that from my own personal experience. I have become a fan of this web store.
Your hyssop is incredibly healing. Whenever I feel a cold or sore throat coming on, I dab a few drops at my temples and smooth onto the back of my neck. Also great sprinkled on a cotton hankie and inhaled. I have not had a full-fledged-flu in years due in large part to breaking out the hyssop as soon as I feel something coming on. A medicine cabinet staple!
