Calamus, also known as Sweet Flag, was well-known in Biblical times and mentioned in Exodus 30: 22-25 as one of the ingredients of the 'holy anointing oil'. This herb has traditionally been smoked, eaten, or brewed into a tea, decoction, extract, tincture and syrup. Widely used north of the equator, Calamus was used by the ancient Greeks, throughout Europe as a medicinal, and by the aboriginal peoples of North America. In the British Isles, its insecticidal and antimicrobial properties made it a favourite to use for thatch. In Ayurvedic tradition, where it is known as Vacha, it is still used as an aphrodisiac.
