Dried whole leaves.


Laurus nobilis

The bay tree is an aromatic evergreen shrub native to the mediterranean. The leaves are smooth and broad, and very often used in stews and soups to add savory herbal notes. If you've ever found a whole leaf in your bowl of stew and worried that someone tried to cook a tree, it's all good, that's just the bay leaf.


Bay leaves are steeped in centuries of mythology and folklore. In ancient Greece, Daphne, a nymph who followed the path of Diana and did not want anything to do with any male, was protected from a pursuing Apollo by being turned into a bay tree. Bay leaves are representative of protection, good luck, and warding off evil. In fact, superstition holds that when a bay tree dies, disaster will follow. 


Bay leaves are an absolute staple in a witch's herbal closet. They are a powerful all-purpose herb with a multitude of applications.  Use them to manifest dreams, wishes, and wealth. Use them for protection and warding against harm. Use them to invite psychic dreams and visions of the future.


One of our go-to quick and easy spells is a bay leaf manifestation. All you do is write a wish on a bay leaf and light it on fire. As it burns, visualize your wish coming true.
