Magickal uses: Hyssop has a very particular use in American folk magick: To “wash away” the stain of negative spells. A Hyssop bath is a follow-up step to performing a curse or jinx. The Hyssop is said to cleanse inside and out, absolving the magick worker of any guilt.It wards off evil.

Carry Hyssop in your pocket to prevent unkind thoughts and energy from sticking to you. Add Hyssop tea to the bath as an uncrossing remedy. If you’re the one who’s crossed someone, the ritual bath will wash away the bad juju and leave you squeaky clean. Dispose of everything you used in the hex properly before making the Hyssop bath. Scrub your hands and body while reciting the 51st Psalm.
