Bay Laurel Laurus nobilis, what we call Roman Laurel, is an old, old plant that flourished on the archaic supercontinent of Gondwana. It predates the dinosaurs and all mammalian life on Earth, and is one of the few plant species to have survived from an early geological age. Bay was waiting for humankind at the dawn of civilization! It was so revered by ancient civilizations that wearing of a crown of its leaves was reserved for the noblest of nobility. Today, a reverential renaissance is sweeping through modern laboratories as scientists rediscover the medicinal properties of this enduring plant.

Not to be confused with West Indian bay rum, European bay has a spicy bay leaf scent that is less round and buttery, and more gently camphoraceous, with a warm bite that's akin to eucalyptus. The scent of Roman Laurel is intoxicating ⎯ there's a reason that Laurus nobles has been famous for millennia.

Apollo wore a crown of laurel. Wreaths of laurel were awarded to winners of ancient competitions, and laurel wreaths have been used to symbolize victory and achievement ever since. If you haven't experienced European bay laurel, don't "rest on your laurels." You'll love this soap.
