I discovered this oil in a meditation class. Someone described it to me as a “scent the polar bears walk on in the Tundra”. Labrador Tea Essential Oil is a name commonly applied to three closely related species of rhododendron. They include: Rhododendron tomentosum (Northern Labrador Tea, previously Ledum palustre) Rhododendron groenlandicum (Bog Labrador Tea, previously Ledum groenlandicum or Ledum latifolium), which is this product, and Rhododendron neoglandulosum (Western Labrador Tea, or Trapper’s Tea, previously Ledum glandulosum).

Sometimes this is also called Greenland Tea, Greenland Moss or Ledum Essential Oil. The aroma is green and unique for it has a medium strength. This essential oil is rather expensive because of its origin and is not yet very popular. My studio met a Labrador, Newfoundland company who sold the tea, and I began to carry it. My fascination to this plant has drawn me to use the tea and meditate regularly with the essential oil.


In Labrador itself, the tea is also frequently called “Indian Tea”. All three species are primarily wetland plants in theHeather family (Ericaceae) with strongly aromatic leaves that can be used to make a very palatable herbal tea or this essential oil. Labrador tea has been a favourite beverage among Athabaskan and Inuit peoples for many years.
