Bay Laurel


Bay Laurel (Bay Leaf) – is whole and sold by the ounce.

Bay Laurel, also known as Bay Leaf, Bay Tree, Roman Laurel, or Sweet Bay, and comes from an evergreen native to Asia Minor and the Mediterranean region. It can grow to a height of 10 to 18 meters but can be successfully grown in a pot to reduce the size. It grows well in shady and damp areas of the garden in most soil types though its preference is soil that retains moisture and is well drained.

The leaves are waxy and oval-shaped. The flowers are greenish yellow in color and grow in small umbrels. The tree is pyramid shaped, and its scientific name is Laurus, which means ‘praise’, and Nobilis, which means ‘famous or notable’. Do not confuse this with the Mountain Laurel, which is a native of the United States, and has poisonous leaves.

The leaves of the Bay Laurel can be used fresh or dried, and can be harvested at any time of the year.

Testimonials
I just got my order and I have to say I am totally shocked. I ordered two Druid Robes, one black and one natural. The robes were the same price and I thought from looking at them that price was really cheap. Now that I have them I can't believe your selling these for what you are. They are so well made and the quality of the material is outstanding. These robes will be in use for a very long time and I will be a customer of The Magick Moon for a very long time!
