Product Abstract: The laurel tree is a small unimpressive shrub or tree, originating in the eastern Mediterranean countries. The evergreen tree reaches maturity after five years and yields about 5 kg of leaves per season, which in turn gives about 50-70 g of essential oil. Laurel Leaf has been known for thousands of years, but the use of its leaves as a household culinary herb is believed to be a comparatively recent one.

Cautions: Dilute before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.

Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

I realize that not all every oil smells delicious and that scent is very subjective. I've received many oils and have said pewww to myself upon smelling but I realize that this is just the way it is and the scent of the plant. Sometimes the therapeutic properties and energy of an oil will be enough to make me stay with it and give it a shot. Such was the case with Angelica Root CO2 which smelled NOTHING like my beautiful Angelica Root essential oil and also my Palo Santo which wreaked of liquorice which I can't stand. This oil; however, is unbearable. It smells like motor oil pure and simple. I've had many Laurel Leafs from different vendors. It's one of my favorites. I don't know what happened here. This smells like motor oil. It is not usable.

There are no words to describe how powerful this oil is! I suffer from anxiety and depression and my first whiff from the bottle was an emotional one to say the least. One word of caution though, you don't want to overdo this oil! I kept taking deep sniffs from the bottle nearly every day, and after about a week, I couldn't smell it without getting a severe headache. I thought I would never be able to tolerate my beloved Laurel Leaf ever again, but after a few months I found I was able to enjoy it again. But, sadly, I have never again experienced that strong emotional reaction that I had the first time.

This is truly an elegant essential oil. It's difficult to explain the aroma, but this is well worth tbe money. Beautiful, it'd be very nice in autmn or holiday blends.

This oil is amazingly complex, the description is very accurate. The scent is pretty strong, I will use sparingly. A new favorite for me.

I am new to the wonderful world of essential oils and aromatherapy. I bought this oil to use in a synergistic blend for respiratory conditions. A friend told me it was good for damaged nerves and muscles, so I put a drop on an injured spot. One drop. Wow. Very powerful results, with some emotional release as well. Plus, the fragrance of this is wonderful. I want to keep putting it on just so I can keep smelling it. And, by the way, I am extremely pleased with the quality of your products. My friend has been paying those outrageous prices of the big name sellers and couldn't believe that I could get good oils for these prices. When she smelled the bottles in my purchase, she was sold. Love the stuff, love the prices and now I can afford to offer it to my massage clients at a reasonable price. Thank you, New Directions!
