Incienso Canario

Artemisia thuscula, también llamada Artemisia canariensis, o comúnmente ajenjo de Canarias o incienso canario en España o mol en la isla de El Hierro, es una especie de arbusto endémico de las Islas Canarias.

These bushes just grow everywhere on La Palma and the smell is soft and sweet … I heard the taste is bitter, so I guess this plant contains a lot of phenols which means: a possible film developer!!

I collected a little sackfull of leaves, took them home with me, dried them and weeks later developed a PlusX super 8 film stripe in tea made from these leaves! The result is wonderful: sweet and soft black and grey tones!
