Bay Essential Oil Variations
A top notch, top note Bay Oil that is an energizing, stimulating oil and brimming with get up and go power. Fresh, Spicy and seductively sweet, it has traditionally been used as an aphrodisiac and is also commonly used in men’s fragrances when a sweet but masculine note is needed.
This warming oil is often used in aromatherapy as an antiseptic, for the respiratory system, perking up the digestive system, settling stomach pain and expelling wind. Also said to promote confidence, courage and insight.
The real benefit of bay may lie in its calming and warming effect on emotions, together with coping with general aches and pains, including rheumatic pains. Bay is a confusing oil, since in smaller doses it invigorates and in larger doses it can be almost sedative.
