My Hyssop Essential Oil Experience: Only One Brand Made the Cut

Essential oils have a broad price range depending on what is used, quality control, the process, and the company. The tendency is to think the more expensive the price tag for the essential oil the better the oil. It might not necessarily always be the case.

Introduction

Essential oils have a broad price range depending on what is used, quality control, the process, and the company. The tendency is to think the more expensive the price tag for the essential oil the better the oil. It might not necessarily always be the case. I was surprised about how the same type of oil in its many different options could be so different.

Determining I Needed a Hyssop Essential Oil

I was definitely one of my acupuncturist/homeopath’s most difficult patients. One time when I was at my appointment, she could not find a homeopathic remedy that would work for me. She decided to use an essential oil instead. By using her years of knowledge, she was able to determine it was the hyssop essential oil. At the time, she happened to have thirty different types of hyssop oil in her office! She started muscle testing me for the one that would work best for me.

Ironically, as she was going through this process, none of them were working! I was starting to get discouraged. It wasn’t until we came to the end of the options that she selected the less expensive one. I’ll admit, I didn’t particularly care for the smell of it. It was more ‘rough around the edges’ you’d say. For whatever reason, it was the correct one I needed. Using it, balanced me out, for a while.

My Questions about this Hyssop Oil Experience

Of course, I had to wonder, if hyssop oil was the solution why did it have to be this one particular brand? Why did the other ones not work?

I was very thankful she had so many options to choose from. I couldn’t imagine going through so many brands, buying so many, and them not working, or me not knowing it wasn’t working and wondering why I wasn’t feeling better. Or by the time I finally found the one that would work, it might not be what I needed anymore. Alternative medicine is strange that way. Our bodies are forever changing.

Did I know why I needed the oil in the first place? No. There were several possibilities. Hyssop oil is touted as being helpful for many purposes. Several were very viable possibilities of what I was trying to combat. I just knew I needed it and there was only one brand that worked for me. In case you were wondering, it was the NOW® brand. But just because it was the one for me, doesn’t necessarily mean it was the one for you. Our body’s are picky. I also believe they know what they need and they are just trying to tell us.

I Had a Picky DISH

Years later, after struggling daily with my health, I came to realize this concept I have formed in my mind about why I think it is easier for some individuals to be healthy while others suffer with chronic illnesses or autoimmune diseases. This concept isn’t an afterthought. I elaborate significantly in my book, Health Backwards: An Original Look from a Different Perspective. I also talk about it here on my blog. (Check out this blog post, What is DISH?)

DISH is a concept and term I came up with. It has two jobs. 1. Shield the body 2. Sort what the Body Encounters When DISH is doing its job, I am winning against my health challenges. When it is NOT doing its job, I am losing. It's that simple. (But it's not that easy. But then again, autoimmune diseases aren't easy either.)

Realizing I have a DISH that needed to be adjusted helped me to understand why my body was being so picky. For healthy people, I believe this DISH adjusting is automatic. For those struggling, I think we need to do it manually. The difficult part here is that if you are someone who has a working DISH, it’s quite difficult to understand what it is like to live with a faulty DISH.

Conclusion

I think this is why alternative medicine is tricky. It is more complicated than we think. It is difficult to find the correct answer, even when we know what it is. But we keep searching for it. We search because when the solution is found, it works well. We can function regularly. Some people are just more difficult to help. I think understanding DISH will make this process much easier. It gave me a chance to be well.
