Cistus Creticus Incanus- Pink Rockrose Herb- Crete
This Cistus is well known historically as a fragrant and healing herb. It comes directly from the growers on Crete.
I have found it to be a perfect incense base, with soft balsamic herbal notes on the heater that aromatically supports other herbs and resin. It is also lovely heated all by itself. Cistus, or Rockrose, is the species of plant that Labdanum comes from and the scent of the resinoid comes through on the leafy herb.
It is ground to a coarse powder and ready to use in blends.
Cistus incanus or Pink Rockrose is a rich source of beneficial bioactive compounds such as rutin, gallic acid, bioflavonoids, proanthocyanidins and polyphenols. It is a well-known as a herbal medicinal remedy that has remained popular over thousands of years.
