About Bay oil

Bay Oil (Pimenta Racemosa) is harvested from the Pimenta Racemosa tree in Dominica. It is not to be confused with the bay leaves used is cooking as it is a different chemical composition. The fresh bay leaves are steam distilled to form a dark amber colored oil. It is not Bay Rum or Bay Laurel which are common forms seen on the market but is a rather rare form for bay found in few countries, and is known for its homeopathic medicinal properties.

  • Make a blend of oils to use as a massage oil on the skin inclusive of a carrier oil such as coconut or almond oils. It is important to dilute bay oil because it is very potent. Never use it alone directly on the skin. Some of our favorite recipes include:

Favorite Facial Moisturizer: 10 drops bay oil and 2 oz coconut oil

Sleep blend: 10 drops bay oil, 2-3 does sweet orange oil, 1 top clove oil and 1 tablespoon almond oil  


Anti-depressant blend: 2 drops bay oil, 4 drops black pepper oil, 4 drops bergamot oil and 1 tablespoon jojoba oil

Bath: 6-10 drops in your water and ENJOY!

Scalp Treatment: 25 drops and 2 oz coconut oil

  • Use a diffuser to fill the air your breath while you sleep or all the time. The bay permeating the air in such a way not only helps you but will also keep pests at bay. 3 to 5 drops with distilled water will freshen your room right up! 2 drops of bay oil and 4 drops of myrtle oil with distilled water in your diffuser can help treat flu symptoms. 

  • Add a couple of drops of our bay oil to your shampoo to assist with dandruff. 

  • Make your own cleaning supplies by combining bay oil, vinegar and a soap like Dr. Bronner's with water in your mop bucket or in a spray bottle. You can add other essential oils of your liking as well. Not only does it smell good and keep bugs away, but it actually works and is healthy for your household.
