Aragorn was familiar with athelas┤s healing and painkilling properties. He used the plant to help Frodo after Weathertop and the Mines of Moria. Athelas was also critical in the revival of Faramir, ╔owyn and Merry in the Houses of Healing in Minas Tirith.
The plant had long leaves. When bruised or crushed they gave off a sweet and pungent fragrance.
