Immune Support

Bay Laurel is one of the first oils we reach for when we're feeling run-down or low immunity. It is very  effective in supporting the lymphatic system and stimulating healthy immune function. Bay Laurel is a wonderful choice for treating cold & flus, respiratory infections, swollen glands & lymph nodes. Diffuse Bay Laurel in your environment or place a few drops at the bottom of your morning shower anytime you're feeling under the weather. The strengthening effects can be felt almost immediately.

Inside Info

Our favourite power couple for all things Cold & Flu Season is Bay Laurel and Spike Lavender - they're a match made in immunity heaven!

Anti-Depressant

Bay Laurel is not only immune strengthening; it is also psychologically strengthening and uplifting. If you suffer from the wintertime blues, Bay Laurel is your new best friend. It will energize you, clear your head and stimulate your awareness.

Dandruff & Hair Growth

Yet another need high on the list of most Canadians throughout the winter; hair and scalp health. Used in a scalp treatment oil, Bay Laurel will help to treat dry, flakey scalp and stimulate hair growth. *This is not an application for daily use, frequent use of Bay Laurel on the skin can lead to sensitization, use once monthly and ensure it is well diluted.

Scalp Treatment Oil

Add 3 drops of Bay Laurel Essential Oil to 10 ml of Avocado Oil. Stir well and massage into scalp and hair, allowing to sit for 10-15 minutes before shampooing as normal.
