Energizing laurel leaf essential oil has a sweet, herbaceous, slightly spicy scent. With a reputation for a victory that spans much of history, laurel leaf helps the body achieve peak health by cleansing out old, stagnant energy. It’s a protective oil—use it for strength against irritants that can close up the breath and for mental clarity that overcomes confusion or fear. Our organically grown laurel leaf essential oil (also known as bay laurel) is steam distilled from the leaves of shrubs in the mountains of Turkey or Georgia.

Safety & Warnings

Non-toxic, though it may cause skin irritation and may be sensitizing, especially if oxidized. Essential Oil Safety by Tisserand and Young (second edition), suggest using it in a low dilution when applying to the skin, such as in bath or massage oils (0.5% dilution based on a 3.8% of Methyl Eugenol content in the oil). Often the oil has a lower percentage of Methyl Eugenol, so check your GC/MS report. For some people using it in a steam may irritate the mucous membranes. Should not be used for children under 5 years old, as 1,8 cineole can also cause CNS and breathing problems in young children. Use with caution on children between 5-10 years old.


All essential oils at Aromatics International are GC/MS tested. This ensures that we sell oils with the highest possible integrity for therapeutic use. Learn more about GC/MS reports here.

A Passion for Aromatherapy

Aromatics International would not be what it is today without your shared belief in what we do, what we stand for, and how we conduct our aromatherapy practice.

I embarked on my journey to source pesticide-free, sustainable products from small-scale farmers and a major criteria of mine is that everything I source is both aromatically vibrant and also therapeatically effective. I love sharing what I find in this world with others. I am constantly blown away by the positive response I receive from all of you. I thank all of you for your strong support throughout the years and am continually inspired by the warm words you share with me. It truly keeps me going.

Love, Karen
