Description & Extraction:
Bay essential oil is extracted from the Laurus nobilis tree, of the
Lauraceae family and is also known as sweet bay, laurel and Mediterranean
bay. The leaves are collected from a tree that is at least 5 years old and
are subjected to steam distillation (salt is often added or seawater used in
the still). The extraction usually yields about 0.5-1.5%. Bay oil blends
well with other oils including cedar wood, coriander, eucalyptus, geranium,
ginger, juniper, lavender, lemon, orange, rose, rosemary, thyme and
ylang-ylang. Bay oil lies in its calming and warming effect on emotions and
general aches and pains, including rheumatic pains. It also settles the
digestive system, excess gas and also acts as a tonic on the liver and
kidneys. In small amounts it has a stimulating effect, while larger doses
produce a sedating effect. Bay essential oil is also helpful with hair and
scalp conditions and is mostly used to combat hair loss and is used with
success in treating sprains, strains and bruises.
The chemical composition of bay oil includes; a-pinene, b-pinene, myrcene,
limonene, linalool, methyl chavicol, neral, a-terpineol, geranyl acetate,
eugenol and chavicol.
Bay oils may cause liver toxicity, but this is unlikely to be due to skin
absorption, as in massage.
Uses & Precaution:
- Bay oil can be used in the treatment of rheumatism, neuralgia,
muscular pain, circulation problems, colds, flu, dental infection, hair
growth, general health of the scalp, diarrhea and skin infections.
- Bay oil has high Eugenol content and may irritate the skin and mucus
