Bay is a member of the Lauraceae family native to the southern and eastern Mediterranean coasts. It is now the only genus of the family still to be found on mainland Europe. The Bay tree usually grows in scrub near the coast and in gorges, often by springs and streams. Bay tree can grow up to 15 meters high and is upright in habit when young. The highly aromatic leaves are usually 5 to 10 cm long, leathery and pinnately veined. Flowers, open in spring, have 4 petals, small, creamy-yellow in color and can be bisexual or unisexual. The berry-like fruits are 1 to 1.5 cm long and shinning black. Bay essential oil is extracted from its leaves through steam distillation.

Bay oil can boost the immune system and help ward off viral and bacterial infections. It can also help indigestion and relieve gas. The fragrance alone deters insects like grain weevils and moths. One of the most popular uses of Bay essential oil is in a liniment or massage oil to stimulant lymph and blood circulation. The oil produces a heat sensation, which alleviates muscle tension when rubbed on the body. Studies prove that inhaling the oil can relieve headaches, as well as sinus and lung congestion. A massage oil made with Bay is prefect when lymph glands swell and head feels foggy due to any type infection.

The scent of Bay oil is fresh and spicy. It has camphor-like top notes rounded off by warm, balsamic undertones.

Bay essential oil has stimulating qualities that help to release repressed emotions or blocked energy, while helping to warm the spirit and enliven the personality. It can help overcome sadness and emotional exhaustion.
