Camel's Thorn

CAMEL’s THORN (ἀσπάλαθος). This occurs in Ecclesiasticus 24:15 KJV—“I gave a sweet smell like cinnamon Asphalathus.”

It is generally agreed that the plant is Alhagi camelorum, var. turcurom. The shrub is thorny, thick and many-stemmed. It is well known in Pal.

Pliny states that the Aspalathus grew in Cyprus and Spain as a thorny, white shrub of medium size. He said it was used in ointments and perfume.
