Thanks Artemis!
Looks like it is very difficult to purchase
this herb (dried).
As for vintage protocols using this herb, sorry I have none, but on several internet sites is posted that it was used by H.L Pernod.
I found a source for plants, maybe I´ll buy one just to taste how that herb tastes like.
As for (non vintage!) protocols, email me your email address.

"Which one was used in absinthe??"

There are several protocols for absinthe using
a herb called dittany.
But there seem to be 2 very different plants
sharing this name:

1.) DICTAMNUS ALBUS (WHITE DITTANY)

2.) ORIGANUM DICTAMNUS (DITTANY OF CRETE)

Which one was used in absinthe??
