Description of Bay Oil W.I.
Steam-distilled from the incredibly fragrant leaves of the West Indian Bay tree, Bay Oil has an extremely smooth and spicy odor, with a somewhat sweet and balsamic tinge. Also known as Bay Rum and Bay Laurel, this oil has a powdery, slightly green nuance that makes it especially popular among "Masculine" colognes and other fine fragrances. The oil sees less usage in flavor, though it is a common addition to Caribbean-style spice blends intended for rice dishes, teas, and liqueurs.
