The medicinal properties of the plant were already known in ancient times, when the plant was also loaded with symbols. It was sacred to Egyptians, Jews, Greeks, and Romans, and in the Middle Ages it was cultivated in home gardens to keep evil ghosts and plagues away. In the past it was used as an ornament in weddings, funerals, feasts, and magic rituals, ant was burned during religious ceremonies as a substitute for the more expensive frankincense. It was also burned in hospitals during pestilences, and used to scent beer and wine.
