Cretan Organic Dittany 15g

Cretan Organic Dittany


Cretan dittany is renowned since antiquity for its medicinal properties as it was prescribed by Hippocrates and mentioned by Aristotle. Native only to Cretan mountains, grows wild in the mountainsides, gorges and is also known as ‘erontas’ (love) as only the most ardent young would climb to such dangerous lengths to collect a bunch of its pink blooms and present it as a love token! Traditionally cultivated and organically grown, is collected when aromas and essential oils are at their peak.
