About the Oil: Bay Laurel was noted to have 'interesting' anti-viral action against the SARS coronavirus, or SARS-CoV, which causes severe acute respiratory syndrome.
Highly regarded in aromatherapy for its positive effects on the lymphatic system. As noted in Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt's 'Advanced Aromatherapy', rubbing a few drops of bay laurel on swollen lymph nodes may have an immediate, noticeable effect. He goes on to state: "The positive and pleasant effect of this oil is so distinct and strong that one application will normally suffice to convince the most hardened skeptic to use it." The oil contains elements of nearly all main chemical groups found in essential oils, resulting in a broad spectrum of positive effects.

The oil has traditionally been used to alleviate digestive complaints, but its modern aromatherapy applications make use of its antiseptic, anti-microbial, expectorant, mucolytic, anti-bacterial, and anti-infectious properties. It may be included in blends for breathing support, and the aroma may be more appreciated by some than other oils used for this purpose. Laurel leaf essential oil can be safely used as an immune system support agent, particularly when one may be exposed to higher-risk situations, or may find their immune system depleted from traveling or stress.

Aroma:  Bay Laurel has an herbaceous, sage, and spice aroma that will blend well with other oils in the same family ~ Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Sage, and the like.

Caution: Always test a small amount of essential oil first for sensitivity or allergic reaction. If pregnant or under a doctor's care, consult a physician.
