LEDUM Essential Oil - Greenland Moss, Lavender Tea

Ledum groenlandicum Ecocert, Canada, leaves, steam distilled

Ledum is sometimes known as either Greenland Moss, or Labrador Tea.

The plant has an ancient history among Native Americans as a 'cure-all'. The essential oil distilled from the leaves seems to have immune system stimulating effects when diffused.. Kurt Schnaubelt recommends the essential oil (taken internally) for liver and kidney detoxification. In  Schnaubelt often recommends it not for treatment of severe illness, but during the recuperation process for general support of the immune system. He also states that it is useful against insomnia.

In his most recent book "The Healing intelligence of Essential Oils"  he also recommends it as being "very effective for lessening nausea and vomiting during chemotherapy,; it reduces pathologically elevated levels of transaminase and gamma-GT enzymes. (Elevated levels of transmainase are indicators of chronic hepatitis.) It apparently acts as an anti-tumor agent by inducing cellular apoptosis.  After conventional treatments it is effective for draining the liver and kidneys."    To detoxify the liver, Dr. Schnaubelt recommends taking the essential oil at the rate of 3 drops, 3 times a day for 10 days.  Nature's Gift does not recommend the internal use of any essential oil unless you are under the guidance and direction of a trained health care professional.

Emotionally, Ledum is said to be calming and reassuring. Some sources recommend it in helping release trapped emotions.

Please note that this is by no means a "beginner's oil" but we have had requests to source it from some experienced aromatherapists and health care professionals. Nature's Gift does not recommend the internal use of any essential oil unless you are under the guidance and direction of a trained health care professional. We were only able to obtain a small amount of this rare oil.

Ledum Hydrosol is available on our Aromatherapy Hydrosols page.  Suzanne Catty recommends the internal use of Ledum Hydrosol during recuperation from serious illness.
