Description

Description

Leaves are collected in summer and dried whole, or as branches, for infusions, powders, and oil distillation. Bay leaves are used in cooking as part of bouquet garni and are added to sauces, soups, vegetable stews and desserts. Medicinally, bay is used to treat dandruff, sprains, bruises, and atonic ulcers.

It is extracted from the leaves of the tree by steam distillation.

Bay oil is dark yellow in colour and has a spicy and sweet aroma. The main constituent in bay oil is eugenol. It is known to be antiseptic and warming. Aromatherapists have traditionally used bay oil as a scalp conditioner and to promote hair growth.
