Products with this ingredient

The main constituent in bay oil is eugenol which is known to be antiseptic and warming. It can be found in hair products as a scalp conditioner and to assist in promoting healthier hair growth.



Bay belongs to the Myrtaceae plant family. It is obtained from large evergreen trees that grow up to 8 metres high and produce large leaves and small fruits. It is indigenous to the West Indies, particularly to Dominica. Bay oil is dark yellow in colour and has a spicy and sweet aroma. It is extracted from the leaves of the tree by steam distillation. The leaves are collected in summer and dried whole, or as branches, for infusions, powders, and oil distillation.
