Product Abstract: The laurel tree is a small unimpressive shrub or tree, originating in the eastern Mediterranean countries. The evergreen tree reaches maturity after five years and yields about 5 kg of leaves per season, which in turn gives about 50-70 g of essential oil. Laurel Leaf has been known for thousands of years, but the use of its leaves as a household culinary herb is believed to be a comparatively recent one.
This oil is also known for its anti-microbial properties. That means that it inhibits any sort of biotic growth (growth of microbes, bacteria, or fungi). Bay Laurel reduces pain, and is particularly effective in pains resulting from coughs and colds. Bay laurel essential oil promotes the discharge of bile into the stomach, thereby helping maintain the acid and base balance in it. Natural insect repellent.
Diffuse and apply topically (Max. 5%)
General: As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).
