Observations and Anecdotal Information
Rock Rose is found throughout the Mediterranean, and was called “Rose of Sharon” in biblical texts.

Its use as a sacred perfume, and medicine has been well documented since biblical times.
Rock rose is also known by other names, including Labdanum. It has a very strong spiritual presence, and can be used to promote meditation or attain expanded states of consciousness. It brings past lives or past issues that have been suppressed, up to the surface for recognition and release.
Rock rose brings out feelings and helps us communicate about them. It eases the emotional body, especially relieving to fear and emptiness. It helps to clear emotional stagnation.
Rock rose also stops bleedings–it can be used to stop hemorrhage, and to relieve hemorrhoids. It helps relieve hematoma, bruises, and blood spots under the skin, and can be applied topically for that purpose.
One of the most well known uses for Rock Rose is as a rejuvenating treatment for aged or wrinkled skin.
