Bay General Information
The bay leaf is oval, pointed and smooth, 1 to 3 inches long. When fresh, the leaves are shiny and dark green on top with the underside being lighter in color. Dried Bay Leaves When the bay leaf is dried the color is a matte olive green. When the aromatic oils are released the smell is warm and quite pungent. If you were to taste the Bay leaf it would be slightly bitter. The bay tree is indigenous to Asia Minor from where it spread to the Mediterranean and then to other countries with similar climates. Bay leaf has been cultivated from ancient times. Its leaves constituted the wreaths of laurel that crowned emperors, heroes and victorious athletes in ancient Greece and Rome. In Biblical times and the Middle Ages, people thought Bay leaves would bring good and they saw it as a protection against evil and lightning. Triumphant athletes of ancient Greece were awarded laurel garlands and were given to winners at Olympic games since 776 BC Today, Grand Prix winners are adorned with laurel wreaths.

Old Mystical Legends, Old Lore
According to legend the Delphi oracle chewed bay leaves, or sniffed the smoke of burning leaves to promote her visionary trances. The fragrant Bay tree has always symbolized glory and honor. In ancient Greece, the Bay Leaf (laurel) was sacred to Apollo, the Greek Sun God; the leaf was also dedicated to Apollo’s son, Aesculapius, the God of Medicine. The roof of Apollo’s temple was made entirely of Bay Leaves for protection against disease, witchcraft, and lighting. Planted in the sacred groves near the healing temples, Bay Leaves were woven in the garlands and wreaths to honor the esteemed figures of the day, including artists, scientists, heroes, and great athletes. Emperors, heroes and poets wore wreaths of laurel leaves. The Greek word for laurel is Dhafni, named for the myth of the nymph Daphne, who was changed into a laurel tree by Gaea (the ancient Greek goddess of the earth, mother of the Titans), who transformed her to help her escape Apollo’s attempted rape.

Bay leaf works great to soothe the stomach and relieve flatulence. A tea made from the leaves soothes minor stomach upsets. It has also been shown, not by scientists, but by the people who drink the Bay Leaf tea, the tea has helped those with arthritis. The oil from the leaves is said to relieve the aches and pains of rheumatism, sprains, bruises, and skin rashes. When pulped, Bay leaves can be applied as an astringent to burns and bruises. Studies have shown Bay to have mildly narcotic and sedative effects on mice; therefore it can be tried in a tea before bed for better sleep, or after a stressful day. Science seems to be behind in research for the Bay, though Herbalists have added the Bay Laurel to toothpaste and deodorant because of its antibacterial action. It is also recommended as an external treatment for insect bites. There are Herbalists that also believe that the Bay is helpful in preventing migraine headaches and in aid digestive difficulties. Oil from ripe berries is used in liqueurs, perfume and in veterinary field. The acid from the leaves discourages moths. Research is under way for Bay Leaves to help regulate the body’s level of insulin, the hormone that carries blood sugar to the cells.

Bay Safety & Interaction Information
Bay leaf is generally regarded as safe; however, it has been known to cause skin irritation for those prone to allergies. Some types of laurel plants are poisonous. It is important to use only Bay Laurel. There is some evidence to suggest that Bay leaf is a uterine stimulant so it should be avoided during pregnancy. Safety in young children, nursing women, or those with severe liver or kidney disease is not known. Please do not eat the dried leaves for they are sharp and can puncture the wall of the digestive tract.
