> Bog Myrtle is also called Sweet Gale and can be found at homebrew supply stores under that name.  It usually comes in a cello package in dried form.  I have found it at The Home Beer, Wine, and Cheese Making Shop in Woodland Hills, Ca. (22836 Ventura Blvd #2, 91364 (818) 884-8586.  In her book A Sip Through Time, Cindy Renfrow warns against the use of Bog Myrtle because it can cause uterine contractions in women.  I haven't researched this any further (although I intend to) so I am going to refrain from using it until I know what concentrations are dangerous.  I hope this helps!
