Bay Laurel - Crete Description and Uses: Bay essential oil, also known as Sweet Bay or Bay Laurel is an uplifting oil that comes from bay leaves, well known in the culinary world. Bay essential oil has a broad spectrum of uses, and is valuable in supporting digestive, respiratory, emotional and skin health.

Bay leaves have been used to keep moths away, owing to the leaf's lauric acid content that gives it insecticidal properties. Bay leaves have many properties that make them useful for treating high blood sugar, migraine headaches, bacterial and fungal infections, and gastric ulcers. Bay leaves and berries have been used for their astringent, carminative, diaphoretic, digestive, diuretic, emetic and stomachic properties. Bay Oil, or Oil of Bays (Oleum Lauri) is used in liniments for bruising and sprains. Bay leaf has been used as an herbal remedy for headaches. It contains compounds called parthenolides, which have proven useful in the treatment of migraines. Bay leaf has also been shown to help the body process insulin more efficiently, which leads to lower blood sugar levels. It has also been used to reduce the effects of stomach ulcers.
