Check this out! Did you know that before golden, bronze, and silver medals, winners of the Olympic games received olive branches and a laurel wreath? I know what you’re thinking; we certainly got an upgrade! But it turns out that the Greeks used laurel leaves for more than a bad head decoration. In fact, laurel leaves provide many benefits to mental, emotional, and physical health. Let’s take a look!
Laurel Leaf’s refreshing minty smell is a hint at its benefits for respiratory health. The essential oil is known to be an expectorant that clears up excess phlegm and mucus within the respiratory tract. Additionally, Laurel Leaf is antibacterial, antiseptic, and antispasmodic. The Greeks considered the plant as a potent alternative for protecting them from diseases. They also used it to soothe involuntary contractions, spasms, and convulsions. Perfect for uterine discomfort during the menstrual cycle!
In addition to these physical benefits, Laurel Leaf is great for cleaning! Eucalyptol, a terpene that gives Laurel Leaf its fresh mint-like smell, has been used in traditional medicine for cough suppressants. However, it is also highly cleansing. It can be used to cleanse the skin and as a minty surface cleaner.
You can use Laurel Leaf by adding two-to-three drops in the diffuser for respiratory benefits or to uplift your mood. Apply directly with carrier oil two-to-three drops and gently massage to soothe painful, spasmodic areas. Furthermore, add several drops to facial cleansers or spray bottles to cleanse skin or surfaces.
