LABDANUMCistus ladaniferus (Cistacee)
Also known as gum rockrose, labdanum originally grew in the mountainous regions of the Middle East. It's now found throughout the Mediterranean area, especially the Iberian peninsula.
A sticky shrub that grows to a height of three metres, labdanum has leaves with hairy undersides and fragrant white flowers.
It is an endemic species in Mediterranean scrub ecosystems.
The essential oil is obtained by steam distillation of the leaves and twigs and is a viscous, orange-yellow liquid (that turns darker with age) with a warm, sweet, musky-grassy fragrance. It combines well with the essential oils of Bergamot, Calamus, Clary sage, Cypress, Frankincense, Juniper, Lavender, Moroccan camomile, Patchouli, Pine, Sandalwood, Sweet myrrh, Vetiver and Oakmoss absolute.
