Cautions and comments
Not normally used on babies, children and the elderly, or on pregnant women. Hyssop has different proportions of chemicals depending on the time of harvest. Traditional harvest will produce an oil high in pinocamhone, whereas if the plant is harvested later in the season, the pinocamphone levels drop dramatically. This latter is the safer oil to use, particularly if a client has slightly high blood pressure.  
Main chemical constituents
