Esphand is a plant which has been highly regarded by humans for thousands of years and distrubuted widely accross the continents of Asia, Africa and Europe. It’s use in the Middle East can be traced to pre-Zoroastrian times, and evidence for it’s use can be found in many regions including Ancient Egypt, Persia and Greece, with some evidence suggesting it may be the elusive Soma. It is still used today in the folk medicine traditions of the Middle East and North Africa for a range of applications, where it is often considered a protective and magickal plant, and often burned as an incense.

It is predominantly the seeds that are used for this purpose, and also to create a deep red dye called Turkish Red.
