Bay Laurel Essential Oil Benefits

Bay Laurel essential oil has trace amounts of methyl eugenol, which lends to its narcotic qualities. It should not be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding and should always be used in moderation by others.

When buying this oil, you may find it under other names such as bay leaf oil or laurel oil. Be sure to look for the botanical name “Laurus nobilis”  to make sure it is the correct one you’re looking for.

It is generally a non-irritant but may cause dermatitis in those prone to allergic reactions. A skin patch test should always be performed, and this oil should always be diluted before using.

Face Tonic/Spray

Essential oil waters make excellent facial sprays. The type of skin you have determines what oil you should use. Bay Laurel is good for normal to blemished skin.

If you cannot find the floral water, you can still make your own spray. Combine one teaspoon of glycerin or aloe vera juice with four ounces of quality water (not from the tap). To this, add two drops each of lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) and Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis).

Shake this well. Leave it for at least 24 hours, shaking it whenever you think of it. After the appropriate time has passed, shake it one last time and strain it through a coffee filter to remove any oil globules left.

Lymphatic Shower Massage

Bay Laurel is a circulatory oil that acts as a general tonic and assists in lymph movement. Massaging with oils while in the shower can help them absorb into your pores.

Add a couple (no more than five) drops of oil to a teaspoon of carrier oil like fractionated coconut or sweet almond. Mix well, then apply to the lymph node areas on the body, such as the knees and armpits.

For Hair Growth

There are numerous oils that can help with hair loss. Bay Laurel is one of them. It is known as being revitalizing and stimulating for hair. If you are struggling with thinning hair, try this blend (using five drops of each oil):

  • Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
  • Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis)
  • Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis)
  • Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens)
  • Ginger(Zingiber officinalis)

Mix these together and keep in a dark amber bottle. To use, add 20 drops of this to one cup of water in a spray bottle. Shaking well before using, spray this on the trouble spots once a day.

Use sparingly. You do not need to use too much; a couple spritzes will do.

For an added kick, combine two teaspoons of argan oil with one teaspoon of jojoba and 5 drops of your hair loss blend. Make sure to combine it well.

Twice a month, massage about half a teaspoon of this into the scalp. Leave on overnight.

Be patient. The hair will not grow overnight. It will likely be 4-5 months before you see any growth.

Make sure you are not using a detergent-based shampoo during this time. Look for a gentle, hypoallergenic one.

Meat Marinade

Numerous oils can be used in the kitchen. If you want to start cooking with essential oils, know that not all can be ingredients in food. Those that can should be used in extremely small quantities.

They are potent, and less is more!

The following recipe is based on one from Valerie Worwood. It is a great marinade that is enough for two pounds of beef:

  • 1 cup Red wine (dry; can substitute non-alcoholic cooking wine or chicken broth if desired)
  • 2 tablespoons Olive oil
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Clove buds, whole
  • 1 drop Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis)essential oil
  • 1 drop Sweet Marjoram(Origanum majorana) essential oil
  • 1 drop Sweet Orange (Citrus sinensis) essential oil
  • 1 drop ThymeThymus vulgaris) essential oil
  • ½ teaspoon Peppercorn, coarsely ground
  • Sea salt, coarsely ground (to taste)

Add the essential oils to the olive oil and blend well. Take 1-2 teaspoons of this mix and rub generously all over the meat. The rest of the oil can be saved to use another time.

Add the onion, garlic, cloves, pepper, and salt to the red wine. Place the meat and your red wine mix in a Ziploc bag or large bowl and place in the refrigerator.

Let marinate for at least eight hours or overnight. Be sure to turn once halfway through so all of the meat is covered.

Grill or cook the meat however you prefer, reserving the marinade to baste with or to make a sauce.

Fights Colds and Flu

Bay Laurel is an antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral expectorant. Diffusing the oil in times of sickness in the home can help during the cold and flu season.

Helps Nervousness, Stress, and Mood Swings

Diffusing essential oils helps balance emotions, and certain oils work better than others depending on the issue and mental state. For mood swings or times of stress, try diffusing a mix of the following:

  • Bay Laurel (Laurus nobilis)
  • Eucalyptus Lemon (Eucalyptus citriodora)
  • Geranium (Pelargonium graveolens)
  • Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)

Alternatively, you can create a body oil of the above blend. Use a total of 15-20 drops in an ounce (approximately 30 mL) of body oil.

Eases Diarrhea

Bay Laurel is often used in folk medicine for relieving diarrhea. Science is trying to determine the validity of this method. 

Extract of the Laurus nobilis leaf was found to aid in reducing castor-oil induced diarrhea in rats. This helps prove its effectiveness as a stomachic.

Do not take the oil internally. Instead, you can add five drops to a teaspoon of carrier oil and massage a little over the abdomen up to three times a day.

” I drink ZEN Fuze after weightlifting and ZEN Fit. Those two are my favorites when it is gym time. I must say that they are certainly the best I have tried so far. Their taste and flavor are the best, but also the quality, energy and completeness. I feel very good after training when I take them.”

” My favorite is product is RESERVE, because I can use it as a snack. Each time I drink it I feel good and recharged. I drink NEVO to get energy when I’m tired or I feel a little down. I take it before all the races, and it charges me up.”
