Bay Laurus Nobilis 

Laurel is an evergreen tree that can reach 20 meters in height. It has shiny leaves and black berries.
The old leaves are picked in Santa Bianca, from late autumn and throughout the winter, discarding the berries and distilling in a current of steam.
If you boil the berries for a long time, you get an oil used to make Aleppo soap.
It has an intense, leafy and spicy aroma.

Suggested uses:

  • Room diffuser: to choose between 3 and 6 drops in 100 ml. of water.
  • Bathtub: 8/10 drops of essential oil emulsified in coarse salt, milk, cream, or honey in hot water (to prevent the oil from evaporating due to the heat).
  • Massages: we recommend diluting 1/3 drops of essential oil in a tablespoon of carrier oil.
  • Food use: we recommend 1/2 drops every 100 gr. of food. Add it at the end of cooking (we suggest to always start with the lowest recommended dose to possibly increase the drops in the future).
