Soothing Green Scent!
The Bay Laurel is an evergreen tree that grows up to 20 metres high, native to the Canary Islands and indigenous to western Europe. With dark green glossy leaves and black berries, it is commonly grown as a garden ornamental shrub. Also known as Bay Laurel or Sweet Bay, but not to be confused with West Indian Bay oil (Pimenta oils), or the Californian Bay Laurel (Umbellularia californica), the Cherry Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus), or the Alexandrian Bay oil (Calophyllum inophyllum). The essential oil is extracted from mature leaves, not yet dried - as this contains the higher oil content.
