The laurel tree is a small unimpressive shrub or tree, originating in the eastern Mediterranean countries, or perhaps in Asia. It has been known for thousands of years, but the use of its leaves as a household culinary herb is a comparatively recent one. The tree, Laurus Nobilis, is cultivated in China, Israel, Lebanon, Turkey, Yugoslavia, U.S.S.R., Italy, Sardinia and France.
Laurel Leaf Oil is a pale yellow to very pale olive green or almost colorless liquid of fresh, strong but sweet, aromatic camphoraceous, somewhat spicy medicinal odor. As a rule, the dryout notes of this Oil are sweet, pleasant and slightly spicy, Unlike those of eucalyptus, cajuput and, to a certain degree, myrtle Oils.
