What is it?


The botanical name for bay leaf is laurus nobilis, but it is also called laurel leaf.  The bay tree is an evergreen plant which originates in Mediterranean regions.

Improve Circulation

When safely applied with a carrier oil, bay leaf essential oil has a mild vasodilating effect. It works by creating a mildly warming sensation, which sends signals to the tissues to increase blood flow.


Soothe Aches & Pains

Bay leaf essential oil can be used as a topical pain reliever to soothe aches & pains caused by post workout soreness and can also help manage back and shoulder tightness from hard labor.


Promote Relaxation

Due to its sedating effects, diffusing bay leaf essential oil can promote relaxation and help you ease into sleep.


What are the benefits?


Bay leaf can be safely used to help you feel less stressed and soothe minor aches and pains. It is a great benefit to adults with busy lives and can be safely applied with a carrier oil and can be safely diffused!


What are the risks?


Do not ever start or stop any natural remedy, supplement, or treatment without first checking with your healthcare provider and discuss the risks and benefits.


Be sure you are using a bio-friendly, 100% therapeutic grade oil. Do not ingest a low-quality oil, as they may be filled with other products and not 100% pure.
