What is Laurel essential oil: Laurel, also called by various common names like bay laurel and sweet bay, is a tree that has been linked with prestige throughout history. Its foliage symbolizes glory and success and was used to make the famous laurel wreath of victory. Likely native to the Mediterranean countries and Asia Minor, sweet bay has been in use for thousands of years. It has been widely cultivated in the Mediterranean region since ancient times. Laurus nobilis is an aromatic evergreen tree or large shrub with green, glabrous (smooth and hairless) leaves, in the flowering plant family Lauraceae. Laurel essential oil has an herbaceous, woody fragrance with a eucalyptus facet. The slightly spicy character is reminiscent of the smell of cajeput.   Held in high esteem by the ancients, laurel was the hallmark of the gods, taking the form of branches or a crown. The laurel wreath was an honor presented to triumphant Roman generals and a prize given winners of physical contests.  It was later adopted by the emperors as a symbol of power. In Greek and Roman mythology, laurel is the emblem of Apollo. The nymph Daphne – Apollo’s first love – was changed into a laurel tree so she could escape her suitor.
