Cistus ladaniferus (Cistacee)

Origin: Spain

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.

(according to
popular herbalist tradition)

Essential oil of labdanum is one of the earliest-recorded aromatic substances in existence. Non-toxic and non-irritant, it has balsamic, tonic, anti-septic and deodorant properties.
Prized as a remedy for snoring, it was formerly diffused in bedrooms.

Nowadays, it's used as a fragrance component and a fixative in lotions, perfumes with an Oriental note, and aftershaves. It's also used in the food and drinks industries.
