Bay Leaf Benefits

Bay leaves are considered a classic herb for adding a pungent, slightly bitter flavor to a number of dishes. Popular in French, Russian, Creole, Indonesian and Balinese cuisines, bay leaves are often used in soups and stews, for pickling vegetables and for creating flavorful boiled seafood dishes like shrimp, crab and crayfish.

Culinary applications are only the beginning when it comes to the bay leaf, however. The bay leaf can also be used for health purposes. Itís an aromatic digestive aid that helps to calm an upset stomach and alleviate gas. It can also be used for improving respiratory function.

Similar benefits apply to the bay laurel berry, which comes from the same plant. In addition to helping with digestive issue and respiratory health, itís also been associated with support for womenís health and joint function.

How to Use Bay Leaves

For culinary purposes, bay leaves are typically added during the cooking process and removed just before a dish is served. In certain recipes, crushed or shredded bay leaves are used for flavoring.

With cut or powdered bay leaves or bay laurel berry powder, you can create a tea by combining a small amount with boiling water. You may want to add honey or lemon to the preparation since bay leaf has a mostly bitter flavor.

Bay leaves can even be used for aromatherapy and hair treatments. Just apply bay leaf essential oil to a diffuser or combine it with a carrier oil for direct application to the hair.
