Ledum (Labrador tea) has a remarkable effect on emotions. It helps dissolving energy blockages (with the massage of the stomach and liver region). It also favors self wakening. Applied on the throat chakra, it helps expressing the truth; on the forehead chakra, it facilitates knowledge and understanding. Combined with bergamot zest, it helps spiritual healing.

Organic : This oil is Organic but not certified. This type of Organic Oil is usually farmed organically but not certified, normally because there is no certifying agency in the area where it is grown. Chemicals such as pesticides, fungicides and fertilizers are not used. Instead the products are cultivated using traditional farming methods. Soil fertility is built; natural systems are worked with, not against; there is minimal, if any damage to the environment, and most importantly, Mother Nature is being respected.

History: In North America, Labrador tea is transcontinental. It tends towards boreal and arctic regions. This indigenous species is mainly found in bogs and sites populated with black spruce. It is a medium-sized evergreen shrub with alternate and oblong leaves. Native Americans drink infused Labrador tea to treat certain respiratory, digestive and renal problems, rheumatisms, scurvy and headaches. They also used it as a blood purifier and as a parturition aid. Besides, the infusion was used as a wash for wounds, insect bites and skin rash and to prepare a dark brown tincture used to color wool and wood.
