  Bay, West Indies (no ratings yet)

• Hair/scalp health.
• Warming.
• Muscle pain relief.
• Uplifting.
• Reviving.


The traditional source of West Indies Bay Rum, this Bay Essential Oil has a spicy, sexy aroma.

It is said to stimulate hair growth it may be useful in cases of strained or sore muscles. Emotionally it is said to stimulate and uplift, warming the emotions, reviving the emotionally exhausted.

WARNING: Bay Leaf may be a dermal irritant and a sensitizer. If using on the skin, use in very weak dilutions, and avoid in pregnancy. Personally, I prefer it in the lamp or diffuser, with a touch of Lime Essential Oil.

Robert Tisserand advises that it may have drug interactionss with pethidine, MAOIS, SSRIs, anticoagulant medications. May contain estragole and methyleugenol. May inhibit blood clotting, skin sensitization (low risk); mucous membrane irritation (low risk). Contraindicated in major surgery, peptic ulcer, hemophilia, other bleeding disorders  maximum dermal use .09%
