7 things that happen when you burn bay leaves at home


Laurel aka bay leaf is an aromatic and officinalis herb plant, which appears in the form of an evergreen tree or shrub, and to which beneficial properties have always been attributed.

For those who are thinking about their classical studies, be careful. The gift that this plant gives to those who use it is not wisdom.

In fact, if the ancient Greeks and Romans considered laurel to be sacred, it was more realistically for its benefits in terms of health than for questions of wisdom.

In particular, by burning a bay leaf at home you can get the following 7 benefits.

  • 1. Strengthens the immune system.  Laurel also contains eugenol, which has antioxidant properties and which, together with other nutrients, strengthens the immune system. 
  • 2. Prevents diabetes. Daily consumption of laurel helps regulate blood sugar levels and prevents type 2 diabetes, thanks to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. 
  • 3. Relieves anxiety. The smoke produced by burning a bay leaf releases chemical compounds such as linalool, which, if inhaled, reduce anxiety and stress within 10 minutes, calming the body and mind. 
  • 4. Opens the airways. Immersing bay leaves in hot water gives off an aroma that reduces mucus and phlegm.
  • 5. Relieves inflammation. Laurel has the great ability to reduce inflammation, thanks to eugenol. 
  • 6. More mental alertness. The smoke of bay leaves has a calming effect, but at the same time, it helps to awaken the brain thanks to its chemical compounds such as cineol and helicin; therefore, it is useful in cases of chronic fatigue. 
  • 7. Increases awareness. Useful during meditation and yoga, thanks to its calming properties and mental reawakening, bay leaves help to prepare for the achievement of self-realization. 

Probably so far you have used the bay leaves mostly in the kitchen, to prepare tasty dishes, but now it is time to bring a few leaves into the living room and bedroom, to take full advantage of all the potential benefits. ;)
