Bay Historical Snippets:

Bay Essential Oil is from “the spice tree” or “bay rum tree”. The Bay leaf is brewed into teas and also may help keep the bugs off and away from you and in your pantry. Unpleasant odours were also masked by hanging Bay branches in dwellings. Also used as a native febrifuge using an sponge bath technique on the sick.

Leaves - Steam Distilled

Aromatherapeutic Uses:

Dandruff, hair care, neuralgia, oily skin, poor circulation, sprains, strains. [Julia Lawless, The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Essential Oils (Rockport, MA: Element Books, 1995), 56-67.]


Shelf Life of Bay Essential Oil: 

Our freshly decanted Bay essential oil will last for 2-3 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly:

Primary Storage Considerations:

Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation)

Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.

Secondary Storage Considerations:

Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.
