The beverage sahlab is now often made with hot milk instead of water, and is sometimes referred to as Turkish Delight, though that name is more commonly used for lokum. Other desserts are also made from salep flour, including salep pudding and salep ice cream. The Kahramanmaraş region of Turkey is a major producer of sahlab known as Salepi Maraş.

The Ancient Romans also used ground orchid bulbs to make drinks, which they called by a number of names, especially satyrion and priapiscus. As the names indicate, they likewise considered it to be a powerful aphrodisiac.

Στην Ελλάδα φύεται στην οροσειρά της Πίνδου και στην λαϊκή παράδοση το φυτό αυτό ονομάζεται σερνικοβότανο, γιατί πίστευαν αν ο μέλλων πατέρας έτρωγε μεγάλους βολβούς σαλεπιού θα γεννιόνταν αρσενικό παιδί. Σύμφωνα με την μυθολογία ο Όρχις ήταν γιος μιας νύμφης και ενός σατύρου και καταδικάστηκε να γίνει φυτό γιατί είχε βιάσει μια ιέρεια κατά τη διάρκεια των βακχικών μυστηρίων.
