The Holy Land has a long history of settlement by many different nations, cultures and religions, as well as a long tradition of using plants for culinary, medicinal and liturgical purposes. This chapter describes a selected list of promising local Medicinal Aromatic Plants (MAP) from this region. The focus is on the most important native MAP and on their potential as new cultivated modern crops. The large climatic variations of this region, present in a relatively small area, create a wide range of natural habitats and high biodiversity of wild plants. Due to the geographical location of this area, which is in the meeting of four phyto-geographical regions, there is a rich diversity of herbaceous plants. Part of the common MAP in the Holy Land vicinity are endemic to this area, such as Micromeria fruticosa, Origanum dayi, O. ramonense, O. syriacumvar syriacum, Chiliadenus iphionoides and Salvia domenica. The rest are local ecotypes of a wider dispersion area, such as Salvia fruticosa, Artemisia judaica, Achillea fragrantissima, Asteriscus graveolens, Coridothymus capitatus, Foeniculum vulgare and Mentha longifolia. Cultivation of medicinal plants that were traditionally collected from the wild is necessary both for protection of plant species in their native habitats, and as a response to the increased demand for uniform high-quality sources of medicinal herbs.
