    Madonna lily Lilium candidum

    Adored by ancient Mediterranean civilisations, this beautiful flower with its rich perfume was planted in the royal gardens of the Minoans, as depicted in wall paintings in Knossos.

    Cosmetic properties: Madonna lily is a highly valuable traditional remedy for external ailments: bottled in brandy or marinated in olive oil, its petals were used long before, well before the band-aid was invented, as an antiseptic and healing dressing, particularly for superficial burns, cracks and chapping.
