Bay Leaf Essential Oil

Bay Leaves have a long and noble history. The ancient Romans and Greeks used to make crowns out of true Bay Leaves to crown great and accomplished people. These great people usually included kings, war heroes and Olympians.

Although a native of Asia Minor, the Laurus Nobilis tree can be found in the Mediterranean owing to its partiality for warm climates. This is generally referred to as Mediterranean Bay Leaf. The Bay leaf tree is an evergreen tree that grows up to a height of 12m. The growth rate is very slow. A mature bay leaf is approximately 5cm wide and 10 cm in length.
