Rock rose is a creeping herb with hairy white flowers native to the eastern Mediterranean, especially the Greek islands. Its Latin name is derived from the Greek word “kístē” (box), for the specific distribution of the seeds of this herb. This aromatic treasure, often referred to as “labdanum”, has been used by mankind in ritual ceremonies since ancient times. The famous Greek historian Herodotus recorded how in his time a sticky, resin-like labdanum substance was collected from the fur of grazing animals. Shepherds combed it from the fur of their goats as soon as the animals were fed. It was then used in various ointments, which is also written about by the father of modern medicine, Hippocrates. Today, this sticky mass is separated by boiling twigs and leaves, or using a special rake-like tool.
