Bay Laurel is a powerful stimulant to the immune and lymphatic systems. It is of tremendous value in dealing with a wide range of viral and respiratory conditions including colds, flu, tonsillitis, and allergies, especially when congestion and infection are involved.
Research into Bay Laurel's potential antiviral ability was promising in its action against SARS corona-virus.
Dr. Kurt Schnaubelt has written: "Bay Laurel's positive effects on the lymphatic system are undeniable. Rubbing a few drops on swollen lymph nodes will produce an immediately noticeable relieving effect."
Bay Laurel acts on the lymphatic system by reducing swollen lymph nodes, promoting lymphatic drainage, and stimulating the formation of lymphocytes - the white blood cells - which play a critical role in the body's ability to fight disease by attacking bacteria, viruses, toxins, and tumors.
This remarkable oil is also stimulating to the liver and spleen, and is therefore an excellent aid to the digestive system. It has been used historically to ease indigestion, gas, and diarrhea; promote the flow of digestive juices; and stimulate appetite. It is also a good kidney tonic.
Bay Laurel is also very helpful for hair and scalp; it is often used in tonics to fight hair loss and dandruff and promote the overall health of the scalp.
