Hello hearters

Bay Laurel Leaf essential oil is derived from the Bay Laurel tree (daphne), which is also botanically known as Laurus nobilis, through a process of steam distillation. In this article, I will mainly focus on its beauty uses, all of which have been useful to me.

Treatment for hair

Daphne oil is considered a great remedy for hair loss. Bay laurel leaf oil is also thought to be a good tonic for the hair, as it brightens them, it boosts hair growth and prevents excessive hair loss. Because it is also an astringent, it helps to tighten the grip of the hair follicles and the hair roots, thus preventing loss of hair. It helps to moisturize the scalp too, thus preventing dandruff and flaky scalp. As such, your hair will look much healthier and your scalp’s health will be drastically improved.
Particularly, daphne oil is really nutrinional, it has softening and moisturizing qualities and therefore, it helps hair's thickness, since it contains antioxides, fatty acids and vitamin A and E. Lastly, it can minimaze the damage due to heat and hair dye.
