Ancient Greek brainiacs flaunted laurel wreaths, a symbol linked to smarts even now. Toss a dried bay leaf into your pot and voilà! Your soup just got a sprinkle of peppery pizzazz, dancing between oregano and marjoram vibes.


Store in a sealed container away from direct heat, light and moisture. Whole bay leaf retains flavor for several years, although color may fade. Use in infused oils and vinegars for hair and skin. Combine with pine cones, juniper, allspice berries and other plant materials as potpourri. Deters mice, moths and some insects. May be burned as incense. Certain aromatic compounds are isolated from the herb for use in cough medicine, mouthwash and perfumes.


Bay leaf edges are sharp and should be removed after cooking.
