The Bay Leaf


The bay leaf, berries of laurel, laurel leaves…oh, where to begin. I LOVE bay leaves. They smell wonderful, they hold their shape when dried and they add a great flavor to food!

This little leaf holds history that not many herbs can stand up against. Through out history and over the years, the bay laurel tree has been known to symbolize honor. The Greeks and Romans have used this herb to recognize scholar achievements and contributions. Even now, we see laurel wreathes honoring winners of athletic events and in our Olympics!

The bay leaf has many important metaphysical properties.
Use to cleanse a space, cast an intention to protect, or include in your dream pillow to enhance your psychic awareness (which we all have). They increase positive healing energy and ward off negative energy. Burn bay leaves after a passing illness to purify a space and kick out any lingering illness.
I personally use them under my pillow at night to help with a good and deep sleep. I dab a little awareness oil (my own recipe) on the leaf that mostly consists of calendula flowers. My visions come to me during sleep, so nice vivid dreaming is always welcome. I also use them to compel my hopes and wishes. Continue reading “The Bay Leaf”
