Cistus

 
May be called Labdanum or Rock Rose. Note that Cistus eo is the product of steam distillation of the entire plant and is liquid. Labdanum is made from the gum that comes to the surface when the plant is immersed in boiling water. Those waxes and resins are steam distilled or in this case solvent extracted.
Used to aid in healing of inflamed skin, acne and boils. Also used as a general tonic for skin conditions, wrinkles and mature skin. As an inhalant to ease coughs, colds and bronchitis.
