Almond trees are native to North Africa and western Asia, but have been cultivated historically by countries that border the Mediterranean. Ancient civilizations like Rome used bitter almond oil as a vermifuge, meaning to get rid of intestinal parasites, and to treat intermittent fevers, notes Grieve. Almond was likely introduced into England by the Romans, according to Grieve. In the Middle Ages, people used it as a laxative and a diuretic. It also was historically used as a cough suppressant.
