Bay Oil Health Benefits

Bay tree is native to the Caribbean Islands from where it is believed to have spread to other parts of the world. This oil is extracted by steam distillation of fresh leaves of the Bay tree, whose scientific name is Laurus Nobilis.


This oil is also known for its antibiotic properties. That means that it inhibits any sort of biotic growth (growth of microbes, bacteria, or fungi) in the body, effectively safeguarding you against those infections.


There is one more advantage of using this oil as an antibiotic.


Bay Oil promotes the discharge of bile into the stomach, thereby helping maintain the acid and base balance in it.


This bile is used to break down the complex food molecules and to neutralize the excess acids discharged into the stomach, which is very important, since this excess acid can wear down the inner lining of the stomach, causing ulcers.


Bay Essential Oil promotes perspiration and facilitates the removal of toxins, excess salt, water, and fat from the body through sweat.


This makes the body lighter and protects it from ailments caused due to the accumulation of toxins, salt, and water in the body.


Perspiration also brings down body temperature in the case of fever. Bay leaves are effective in fighting the symptoms of cold, flu and infections.


In case of respiratory problems, boil water and add 2 to 3 bay leaves. Allow it to steam for 10 minutes.


Soak a cloth in this water and place it on your chest to alleviate flu, cold and cough. Bay leaf tea is effective in reducing fever.


If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use essential oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner.


Use extreme caution when using oils with children and give children only the gentlest oils at extremely low doses.


It is safest to consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using essential oils with children.

    Most of the essential oils sold and marketed in the United States today are manufactured
    with methods that destroy much of the complex live plant compounds,
    rendering the original plant’s beneficial health properties pretty much useless.

    While you’ll see a lot of conflicting opinion about ingesting essential oils, virtually everyone
    can agree that ingesting 1 drop on occasion is safe for all but the most spicy oils (cinnamon or oregano).
