Labraador tea
Labrador tea    Sookail        Ledum palustre
Habitats are mostly bogs and bog forests, but also other forest types, the main thing is that there is enough humidity. In its full flowering period the whole bog forest floor may turn white from the flowers and there is a strong scent of Labrador tea because the essential oils of the plant are very easily volatilized.

If you spend the night in a tent nearby it can cause a quite noticeable headache and sensitive persons may even experience health problems.
