Dittany, an endemic aromatic plant of Crete, grows wild on the cliffs of the island. Popular since ancient times, identified in popular myths with all aspects of life, it is known by many names that also reveal its medicinal properties, such as Stomachwort. It has a long history in medicine as a digestive aid, a soothing remedy for upset stomachs, and a remedy for colds and pains. It has been a daily delight of Cretans for centuries and is an integral part of the Cretan diet, scientifically recognized for its nutritional value and contribution to well-being and longevity. The European Medicines Agency recognizes Dittany as a traditional herbal medicine for coughs and mild gastrointestinal problems. For even greater potency, the blend is fortified with the active dry extract of dittany.
