Rose of Sharon (Cistus Ladanifer), commonly known as the “rock rose” grew in biblical times in the valley of Sharon in Israel. Its leaves and stems are sticky, eluding a gum which was collected by the Shepherds from the hair of goats that had gotten entangled in the bushes. Shepherds used it on cuts and abrasions for healing wounds. Today, scientific research has discovered it might be more effective on cell regeneration
