Ledum Materia Medica


Ledum, not having a particularly attractive scent, is a small oil which is little used or described in aromatherapy. Nevertheless, in Spiritual PhytoEssencing it is a very valuable, albeit complex, oil.

In herbal medicine, ledum is used to: increase urine flow; and treat the following: coughs; irritation of the respiratory mucosa; whooping cough; dyspepsia; dysentery; itching in scaly skin diseases such as psoriasis; generalized itching; infectious, feverish eruptions; leprosy; inflamed sore throat.
