"Healing mountain." A hill or mountain that has healing properties. It is where Menglöð and her nine handmaidens sit. Lyfjaberg is attested in the eddic poem Fjölsvinnsmál:

Hyfiaberg 'tis called,
and long it has a solace been
to the bowed-down and sorrowful:
each woman becomes healthy,
although a year's disease she has,
if she can but ascend it.
