AQ Essential Oil - LAUREL BERRY
Laurel Berry (Laurus nobilis) - India. Laurus nobilis, known as Bay Laurel or Sweet Laurel, is an aromatic evergreen tree or large shrub with green, glossy leaves native to the Mediterranean region, and figuring prominently in classical Greek, Roman, and Biblical culture. The fruit of the Laurus nobilis is a small, shiny black berry-like drupe about 1 cm long, containing a single seed; the fruit is pressed and steam distilled to produce LAUREL BERRY oil. The oil has a pleasantly warm fruity, berry-like scent with a medicinal bay-like undercurrent. In massage therapy, the essential oil of bay laurel is reputed to alleviate arthritis and rheumatism, while in aromatherapy Laurel Berry oil may be useful in dyspepsia, flatulence, loss of appetite, scanty periods, colds, flu, tonsillitis, viral infections etc. It has also been used as an insect repellant. The oil is attributed to be anti-rheumatic, antiseptic, bactericidal, diaphoretic, digestive, diuretic, emmenagogue, fungicidal, hypotensive, stomachic and sedative.
AROMA QUEEN PREMIUM ESSENTIAL OILS
Our very special Premium Range is for anyone who appreciates quality: top grade oil & plant species, sought after country of origin, as well as many unusual, exotic and hard to find oils. We have searched far and wide to find the best quality oils - all are 100% pure undiluted plant based oils with no additives, synthetics or preservatives. We do NOT stock 'nature identical' or 'nature blend' oils - these are chemical concoctions of ingredients similar to what is usually found in a plant oil, and as such do not contain the same therapeutic qualities as pure oils.
Our 10ml Premium Essential Oils are packaged in Aromatherapy-safe cobalt blue glass with silver cap, complete with top ID label - a necessity for anyone with more than a couple of bottles in their collection. 4ml precious oils are supplied in a small dropper vial. 50 and 100ml bulk sizes are available for some oils, and are supplied in an amber glass bottle - if you require a bulk size and it isn't listed just send us an email and we'd be happy to give you a quote - contact us at [email protected]
If you're new to aromatherapy, or want to stock up on a few different oils, please take a look in our PACKS & KITS section for discounted Starter and Advanced packs.
SAFETY & USAGE
As with all essential oils, our oils must be diluted before application to skin, must NEVER be administered internally, and must always be kept out of the reach of children. Some must be avoided when pregnant (see individual listings), and others should not be applied to the skin before exposure to sunlight. Read the top section of each individual oil listing for warnings and contra-indications on that oil, and also head to our 'LEARN MORE' section for a quick introduction to aromatherapy if you are unfamiliar with essential oils. For anyone starting out we'd recommend even a basic introductory booklet on the subject (see our BOOKS section for a selection of booklets and textbooks).
Always remember, Aromatherapy is intended to complement, not replace traditional medicine.
