Bay Laurel Essential Oil - 
Traditionally Used
to Protect and Cleanse

Bay laurel essential oil has been traditionally used to protect and cleanse. This oil has been used since Ancient Greece and Rome.

Spiritually, in the Middle Ages the laurel or bay leaf tree was often planted in front of a house for protection, and to promote success. It symbolically represents victory and brings back memories of the Olympic Athletes and Ancient Romans who wore it as a wreath on the crown of their head.

As I receive new tips and testimonials for Bay Laurel Essential Oil they will be added to the page, so check back frequently!

What is the Genus Species? Laurus nobilis. Common names include: Sweet Bay, Sweet Laurel, and Bay Leaf.

Why is this Information Important? It’s always important to know your genus species of your oil. Just the common name on the bottle doesn't really tell you exactly what you’re getting.

The Laurel family contains up to 4,000 species of plants including avocado, cinnamon and the camphor tree. Make sure you know what you are using for the appropriate application. For instance, many of us use the California or Indian species of bay leaf for cooking; but the European species cited here may have different constituents.

Where Did the Name Come From? Lauris comes from the Latin word meaning "to praise"; and nobilis comes from the Latin word meaning "renowned or famous".

Why is this Information so Important? Its not, it's just a fun fact!

What Part of the Plant is Used? Leaves and twigs

What is the ORAC Value? 98,900 µTE/100g

What Does this Number Mean? ORAC stands for Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity. It tells you the antioxidant capacity of a food item.  This was developed by the USDA researchers. For instance: Oranges = 750; Clove = 1,078,700. Wow! The number for clove is NOT a typo!

Bay laurel essential oil heightens awareness and perception. Expect intuitive, clairvoyance and clairaudience skills to be amplified. Because the mind is relaxed, one will be able to receive messages better and have confidence in the process as well.

Laurel oil also integrates the emotional and mental bodies which helps to release blocks to embodying personal power or fear of personal power.

Can this Oil be Used for Animals? Yes. Have your animals smell it directly from the bottle or place a drop or two in your palm, then smell. Or place a drop in your palm and pet head to toe.

I only recommend using Young Living Oils on animals at this time.

What are the Safety Precautions? Only therapeutic grade essential oils should be used for best results.

Repeated use may cause contact sensitization and this oil should be avoided during pregnancy.

If you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition, consult a healthcare professional prior to use.
