I understand that athelas, or Kingsfoil in english, unlike some other plants named by JRRT in his books,is a real herb. Has anyone ever come across it and are there any uses for it? Where is it found?

were kindled clear, and waxing bright
shone like stars that in the North
above the reek of earth leap forth." </p>
