General description and domicile:
Native to Northern Europe as Ledum palustre, Northern America as Ledum latifolium and Greenland as Ledum groenlandicum this four foot high green shrub looks very similar to rosemary and the flowers smell like hops when bruised. The branches are hairy and the plant flowers (white in clusters) in June and July. Although there is very little difference between the different sub-species only Ledum palustre is used in the homeopathic remedy.

Part used and extraction:
There is some confusion in my reference material on which parts of the plant is used. Some say that all of the plant is used, harvested in the flowering season others that only fresh shoots of leaves are used, harvested in the flowering season.

Remedy preparation:
Chopped and steeped in alcohol to obtain mother tincture
