Our Bay essential oil, also called Laurel Leaf, is organic grown and distilled on the southern Greek island of Crete. It has a warm, soothing, fresh sweet and spicy aroma.
Aromatherapy benefits of Bay Leaf are said to include cold and respiratory conditions. Bay Laurel Leaf essential oil is a powerful antiviral with scholarly papers documenting
its effectiveness against SARS-CoV*. Also consider adding Bay Laurel in massage blends targeting muscular aches and pains and body lotions and creams geared toward feet and legs. Bay may also provide relief from headaches. Try adding a few drops of Bay Laurel and Peppermint Premium

Bay Laurel is sometimes confused with Bay (W. Indies)
distilled from the leaves of Pimenta racemosa. Please make sure to check the botanical name when ordering to ensure you are ordering the correct Bay for you.
