Cistus (Rockrose) was imported into Ancient Egypt from Crete. The resin was extensively used in Egypt as a perfume and in incense. At the time of Christ, an incense was made using frankincense and myrrh from Arabia, galbanum and "onycha." The latter has been identified as gum labdanum, which is exuded from the leaves of Rockrose. The oil has been used in Europe since the Middle Ages in ointments and compresses to treat infected wounds and skin ulcers. It is also used as a fixative in many perfumes.
