In the past, the locals would gather the fluffy grey-green leaves from the cliffs and gorges of Crete, its only habitat. Today, this rare and unquestionably important herb has been rediscovered and has become a part of our diet for its medicinal and gastronomic benefits. Primarily it is renowned for its capacity to relieve aches and pains of the digestive system, and has the reputation of being an excellent digestive. It has strong antioxidant effects, which are linked to preventing cardiovascular conditions and combating free radicals.  As it also has antimicrobial properties, it has traditionally been used for winter colds as well as fighting halitosis.  Finally, it helps in disorders and conditions of the nervous system.
