Labrador Tea Hydrosol / Ledum Hydrosol
Labrador Tea Hydrosol isn't widely available. However, it is an intriguing hydrosol that shows potential for use in emotional applications according to Suzanne Catty (see below for citation).
Labrador Tea Hydrosol isn't the most pleasant smelling hydrosol. It is somewhat sweet and herbaceous in aroma.
Up to 2 years if stored properly (refrigeration is recommended).
