The history of ladania or kistos seems to start from the period of Arab rule, when the exploitation of the plant in Crete began. Herodotus and Diouskourides describe in their texts that the collection of labdanum resin was not made directly from the plant but from the beards of goats, who ate the leaves of the ladanias. Later, The collection of resin was done with a tool, similar to a rake. This tool was made of leather strips, which encapsulated the herb between them. In addition, Diouskourides (500 BC), a well-known physician and botanist of the time, mentions very characteristically in his texts that olive oil has healing and emollient properties. He also used it to strengthen hair and treat oral diseases, for example gum problems.
