Regulates Menstrual Flow
Extracts of the bay laurel leaves have been used to stimulate menstrual flows, thus making the essential oil a good, natural remedy for irregular and improper menstrual cycles. It helps to stimulate and regulate menstrual cycles, thus ensuring that your menstrual flows are proper, timely, and regular. It also helps to ease menstrual cramps, given its antispasmodic qualities as it relaxes the uterine muscles and it relieves commonly associated problems, such as nausea and fatigue.
How to Use it: Dilute the oil with a carrier oil (such as grape seed, jojoba or rosehip oils) in a 1:1 ratio and gently massage onto your abdominal area for pain relief and to stimulate menstruation.
Offers Pain Relief
Bay laurel leaf oil is also known for its analgesic qualities, and it is often used to provide pain relief to a variety of ailments like muscular and joint problems associated with arthritis, rheumatism, gout, or to sore, aching muscles after an intense workout session. Simply rub it onto the desired areas, and you will feel better in no time! Besides offering muscular relief, the oil can help to alleviate pain arising from headaches or migraines. Furthermore, the oil is all-natural, which is definitely better than over-the-counter painkillers and analgesic pills as those might carry unwanted side effects and may be harmful to your overall health in the long run.
How to Use it: Simply dilute the oil with a carrier oil and gently massage onto the affected areas. You can also add a few drops of the oil in a warm compress and press gently onto the affected areas.
As a Potent Insect Repellent
The oil also has potent insect repelling qualities, as it is known to be able to ward off pesky and unwanted creatures from invading your homes and offices. You no longer need to spend on expensive and synthetic pesticides or insecticide bottles from the supermarket when you can have this all-natural remedy instead! Furthermore, such commercial pesticide bottles are detrimental not only to the environment but to your health as well if you breathe in too much of it.
How to Use it: Simply diffuse bay laurel leaf oil into your diffuser or vaporizer. A few drops of the oil can also be added to a spray bottle containing water, and you can spray it all over surfaces and cracks to prevent insects and other creepy crawlies from residing.
To Promote Hair Growth
Bay laurel leaf oil is also thought to be a good tonic for the hair, as it boosts hair growth and prevents excessive hair loss. Because it is also an astringent, it helps to tighten the grip of the hair follicles and the hair roots, thus preventing loss of hair. It helps to moisturize the scalp too, thus preventing dandruff and flaky scalp. As such, your hair will look much healthier and your scalp’s health will be drastically improved.
How to Use it: Simply dilute the oil with a carrier oil in a 1:1 ratio and apply onto the scalp and hair. Rinse off after a few minutes.
Warnings: Natural essential oils are highly concentrated and should be used with care.
