Dittany has been known since antiquity and its ancient physicians attributed many healing properties. It got its name from the Cretan mountain, Dikti (Lassithi mountains where according to mythology was the birthplace of Zeus) and the word shrub (Diktamnos, the Bush of Dikti) where it used to be abundant. Dittany is considered a real gift of the deity, a messenger of health, happiness and love. This miraculous herb has been known since the Minoan Era when the Minoans made perfumes, healing ointments & aromatic oils from the herb. From the Minoan Era it has been given the name Theangelis, a plant "sent by the gods". The most sacred product in the Minoan Era was Dittany in olive oil which was offered to the deities, priests and kings of the palaces of Crete, Mycenae and Pylos, from the 15th to the 13th century BC.
The antiseptic action of dittany according to studies concerns the strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Escherichia coli, Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella Enteritidis, Salmonella typhimurium, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Aspergillus, Helicobacter pylori.
Its apolitical action is also remarkable. Aristotle in his work "On animal stories" introduces us to the painkillers and healing properties of dittany, stating the following: when the ibex of Crete (Capra aegagrus) were wounded by arrows of hunters and the arrow remained in their body they instinctively ran to look for a dittany which they chewed and then spat it on the wound.Then the arrow immediately fell and the wound healed.
