Bay Laurel (Laurel Leaf) Essential Oil

Bay Laurel Essential Oil, also known as Laurel Leaf, has a spicy, sweet, fresh, medicinal aroma. The color of the oil is pale yellow to olive green. It is steam distilled from the leaves and branchlets.

Why Auroma 100% pure and natural, therapeutic grade Bay Laurel Essential Oil from The Aromatherapy Place? So you need not worry about buying essential oils that are adulterated: Within the Essential Oil industry it is a common practice for local growers to sell their oils to an international Trader, who then on-sell their products to large, well known U.S. essential oil distributors. Once the oil is sold to a Trader, there is no longer any guarantee as to the quality of the oil. The Trader has the opportunity to adulterate the oil to make a bigger profit. We buy directly from the growers and distillers, skipping the Traders, thereby assuring you of the quality of our essential oils: Every batch, every time!
