Bay leaves have been used for centuries, as early as in the period of Ancient Rome and Greece, and their remedial effects were known ever since then.
Apart from being a symbol of glory and honor, which is why a laurel wreath was put on the heads of Olympic winners, laurel has incredible healing properties.
It is anti-rheumaic, antiseptic, anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant remedy. The berries and leaves of this plant are favorable for stomach flu, neurasthenia and hysteria.
Laurel contains compounds such as cineol, pinene and essential oils, and it has positive influence on our psychoactive condition and good mood.
This effect was even mentioned in ancient myths and legends, such as the one about Pythia (also known as the Oracle at Delphi), where it is indicated that the girls eat bay leaves in order to be able to foresee the future.
Our suggestion is to burn a bay leaf in a candle dish, leave it for 10 minutes and your room and home will get a beautiful relaxing smell with a calming effect.
