Bay Laurel, also known by its Latin name, Laurus nobilis, is a shrub that is native to the Mediterranean, particularly Greece and Turkey. Bay Laurel has been prized throughout history for its aromatic and nutritive leaves and berries. In Greek culture, Bay Laurel is used to create beautiful, aromatic wreaths that represent and symbolize success, strength and victory.

Laurel Berry Oil is a specialty vegetable oil that is produced from the berries and seeds of Bay Laurel. Laurel Berry Oil should not be confused with Laurel Leaf Essential Oil that is steam distilled from the leaves of the plant.

Our Laurel Berry Oil is produced through a time-honored, traditional process of boiling Laurel berries until the seeds and pulp separate. The nutritive oil then floats to the top of the water and is carefully collected and packaged to maintain the purity, freshness and properties of this traditionally produced, nutritive oil.

Because Laurel Berry Oil is abundant in beneficial unsaponifiable components, the oil is thicker, opaque and more aromatic than most commercially available vegetable oils.

Uses:

Laurel Berry Oil has a long history of being used topically to care for numerous physical ailments and skin conditions. It is especially soothing and is known for its ability to assist with severely dry, flaky skin, sensitive skin conditions and other problematic skin issues. It is also remarkably helpful in soothing dry, irritated scalp conditions and for moisturizing dry, brittle hair. It is a cleansing, protective oil that is gentle on the skin.

For centuries, Laurel Berry Oil has been most widely used to produce traditional Aleppo soap, a very gentle yet highly cleansing soap that some prefer to use in place of commercial anti-bacterial soaps. The soap is thought to be named after Aleppo, Syria, the city that the soap may have been first created. Aleppo soap is a highly beneficial soap that can be used for all skin types.

Comments: I am amazed by how quickly this helped with a problem that I'd been struggling with for months. It smells really, really, strong, but it works. It's also very moisturizing. Because of the smell, ash tray like - kind of like black castor but worse, lol, I recommend it only for rinse off products.

Customer Testimonial

"I'm fourteen, and want to start making natural health and beauty products at home for myself. I predict that when I'm older I will go into a business in this area because of your site. The information offered on your site has been amazing to a beginner like me. The range of products is amazing. Yours is the first place I have actually found Rhassoul clay. I've been searching for ages as the stuff works wonders on my face. There's so many other examples of the products like this , but too many to list. It's mind-boggling to think of how long I've been searching, and here you've got it all. Finally, I want to comment on your customer service. It's excellent. You give information and one thing that stood out to me is if there is a negative comment, you try to find out why and comment on that. I love how it's a personalized message that shows you've shown effort to make your customers happier. Overall, your site has wowed me so much I felt the need to send you this email, commenting on it. I haven't yet placed the order due to financial changes I've been making lately, but I can assure you, I will be soon :)"
