Discover the Healing Power of Herbs and Spices : Oregano, Cumin, and Bay Leaves

How to use: Traditionally these leaves are inserted into a soup to produce flavor while all of the spices, vegetables, and juices marinate. I have friends who leave the bay leaves in the dish to get the flavor all the way until the last bite.  Others like to  keep them in a tea steeper to easily remove them before serving the dish.

The essential oil of bay leaves is a well-known component of aromatherapy for various conditions (particularly for the skin and respiratory health). The healing vapors and natural antibacterial qualities from the salves and dressings/compresses that are made with bay leaves help alleviate all kinds of issues with the respiratory system.

Fun hair tip: after steeping bay leaves in water, rub them on your scalp (right after you shampoo) to invigorate your hair follicles and get rid of dandruff.

Wishing you well,
