Fresh bay leaves are very strongly aromatic, but also quite bitter. High-quality bay leaves are easily recognized not only by their strong aroma, but also by their bright green colour. The greener the colour, the better the quality. The essential oil from Bay leaves (0.8 to 3%) contains mostly 1,8 cineol (50%); furthermore, eugenol, acetyl eugenol, methyl eugenol, a- and ß-pinene, phellandrene, linalool, geraniol and terpineol are found.
Distilled Water – It is a process whereby the water is boiled, and the pure steam is re-condensed to water again, leaving behind all heavy metals and contaminants, and killing all bacteria and viruses.
