Add a pinch of dittany to tsipouro or raki. 


Also known by its botanical name Origanum dictamnus, dittany is endemic to Crete where it's called "erondas" as in folk lore it's believed to act as an erotic potion when burned. Of course, on Crete it's also recommended for the cold or flu, headaches, and digestion problems. 

Before its systematic cultivation, dittany was a rare plant and is distinguished by its pale pink or mauve flowers. Its blossoms are used in dittany tea while its leaves are used to produce alcoholic beverages like vermouth. 

Preparation: Place 2 tsp. dittany in a cup. Cover with boiling water and let steep for 3 to 5 minutes. Strain and serve. 

Dittany leaves are used in the cooking in several parts of Greece. Rub together dried leaves with parsely, thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper; sprinkle mixture over grilled fish. 
dittany has healing properties? 

Several texts contain references to dittany's healing properties, including Aristotle and Virgil who both maintain that drinking dittany helps heal arrow wounds. 
The magic plant that prevents lesions in "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" is also believed to be dittany.
