Bay Leaf;* Laurus Nobilis
Digestive Aid, Flavoring
Organic Bay leaves, from the plant known in Latin as Laurus Nobilis, are derived from a plant that is quite favored as a shrub for hedges and topiary sculpture. They are also widely known throughout the world as a flavoring agent for a wide variety of culinary crafts, where they are frequently used to wrap other spices and then removed from the dish in which they are used; the leaves are sharp and unpleasant to eat when left in a dish.
They are also famous in myth and legend as the laurels worn by the glorious victors of Roman and Greek myth and legend. Some also hold that within magical traditions they are quite useful in spells of wisdom, clairvoyance, protection and healing.
