A Little Background

What is Laurel Leaf? The plant is native to the Mediterranean and a symbol of victory in Greek mythology. (Think ancient Olympics!) 

Laurel Leaf smells herbal, minty and refreshing. You can find it in doTERRA's Breathe blend that is used to promote feelings of clear airways and easy breathing. 

Did you know the laurel leaf is also known as the bay leaf? So maybe you have used it in your soups and stews before without realizing it!

Benefits of Laurel Leaf

This little bottle can promote feelings of courage and confidence. Got a challenging day at work ahead of you? Try Laurel Leaf. Talking with that family member that you are intimidated by? Try Laurel Leaf.

It can also promote feelings of concentration, focus, and clarity. Great for school work and occupations.

Laurel Leaf also has cleansing properties. This is because of the constituent eucalyptol it contains. It can be used to help cleanse the sking OR as a surface cleanser.

So let's get into some specific uses!

Uses of Laural Leaf

Massage - Laurel Leaf is soothing to the skin. This makes it perfect to add to some fractionated coconut oil for a massage.

Lotion - Because Laurel Leaf can help soothe the skin, it is also a great essential oil to add to your moisturizer. This is especially great before bedtime.

Skin Care - Laurel Leaf's cleansing properties make it great to add to your skin care. It can help reduce the appearance of blemishes and prmotes a clear looking complexion. 

Diffusing - Of course you can diffuse Laurel Leaf to enjoy its uplifting and confidence-inspiring aroma.
