Bay Leaf Essential Oil
- Hair Growth
- Natural Aftershave
The scent of bay leaf oil is reminiscent of the famous bay rum aftershave, as this essential oil is a traditional ingredient.
Bay leaf essential oil is commonly used as a natural aftershave due to its warm, strong and long-lasting scent.
Bay leaf oil has many properties that benefit hair: it can boost circulation to the scalp and stimulate hair growth, it can act as a natural dandruff treatment, and it can deeply cleanse the scalp and leave hair cleaner and shinier.
The oil also acts as an astringent, tightening skin and inhibiting sebum production for a younger, less oily appearance.
