The Cretan Pink Rockrose (cistus creticus) is an aromatic, medicinal and melliferous plant known since antiquity. Its shoot and leaves contain the balsamic resin fragrant substance, labdanum. Its flowers are pink and look crumpled. According to mythology, when the Gods on Mount Olympus determined which plants would be healing, they decided that Rockrose would heal the warriors who had been wounded in action. This bothered the Goddesses, because they were sure that the plant with the delicate pink flowers would be more suitable for beauty – internally and externally. The result was that both qualities were given to Rockrose, healing and cosmetic ones.

Ancient Egyptians were the first to collect the rockrose resin, while reports confirm its use during the Minoan era.

Dioscorides refers to pink rockrose – to its astringent, warming and emollient properties.

Pink Rockrose is one of the forty ingredients for making the Holy Anointing Oil.
