History

Bay Essential Oil was very popular with the Romans, who thought Bay was a symbol of wisdom, peace and protection. The Latin laudis means 'to praise', which is why the victors at the Olympic Games were presented with a laurel wreath made of Bay leaves. In the past, Bay leaves from the Caribbean were distilled with rum; the Bay Rum so obtained became a famous hair tonic.

Cautions: Bay has a high eugenol content and may irritate the skin and mucus membranes, so use with caution. Avoid during pregnancy.
