Bay essential oil is harvested from the thick, glossy leaves of the evergreen bay tree, known botanically as Laurus nobili, which is a native of the West Indies, Venezuela and the Guianas. The leaves are picked in season when the tree produces yellow tinged flowers and rich black berries.
Bay essential oil has a top note fragrance and a strong, masculine aroma with fresh and spicy tones and sweet layers. It blends particularly well with; cedarwood, coriander, eucalyptus, geranium, ginger, juniper, lavender, lemon, orange, rose, rosemary, thyme and ylang ylang.
Known as a warming oil and favoured during the winter months. Historically, bay oil was very popular with the Romans who saw the bay tree as a symbol of wisdom, peace and security.
It’s a little-known fact that the Latin word laudis means ‘to praise’, which is why the victors at the Olympic games were presented with a laurel (bay) wreath.
Our 100% pure bay essential oil is available in bottle sizes from 10ml up to 5000ml.
