Cistus Materia Medica


Cistus resin or labdanum has been used medicinally for thousands of years in Mediterranean and north African countries.

The oil exerts antibacterial, antiviral, cell regenerative, expectorant, hemostatic, immune tonic, neurotonic (especially for the sympathetic nervous system) and sedative actions.
