Bay has a spicy, sweet-balsamic scent. This is a warming essential oil that can improve circulation and soothe minor muscle sprains and strains. Because of its invigorating properties, Bay has traditionally been used in hair and scalp tonics for greasy hair and to reduce the symptoms of dandruff. It’s a mentally energizing oil that can help support healthy immune and circulatory systems. Bay can be irritating to the skin, so dilute properly before using.
