Cistus / Rock Rose


The legend says that a council was formed on Mount Olympus where the gods determined which plants will be therapeutic. The gods have designated that rockrose will heal warriors wounded in battle. That annoyed the goddesses, because they were confident that the plant with the delicate pink blossoms would be more appropriate for cosmetic reasons, both internally and externally. The result was that cistus was attributed both therapeutic and cosmetic properties.
