More information

The small Santolina cypress (Santolina chamaecyparissus) also called "sanguenite" and Santoline, worm grass, Aragon tea, Rose guard and Gartoufa is a perennial that grows in temperate regions of Europe, North America and from North Africa.

Measuring up to 50 cm in height, this plant from the "Asteraceae" family likes limestone and rocky soils.

Its small, silvery-white to light green leaves are very fragrant and covered with a down pleasant to the touch.

Golden yellow flowers in the shape of small globes appear in June and brighten the shrub all summer long.

The most fragrant and widely used santoline (gartoufa in Arabic) grows in the Algerian desert.

It is added in the soups of the holy month of Ramadan, particularly in the regions of El Bayadh and Béchar.

Unusual: In the past, women put a sprig of santolina in their missal so as not to fall asleep during the service.

Distillation of the leaves produces a clear, yellow to pale yellow essential oil with a herbal and spicy aroma.
