History of Bay
A plant closely tied to world history, the bay laurel has appeared throughout the ages in considerably prominent ways. In ancient Greek mythology, the beautiful nymph Daphne escaped the relentless pursuit of Apollo by turning into a laurel tree, and the Romans celebrated the laurel as a symbol of triumph. Bay contains considerable levels of the compound cineole, while also imparting its signature fresh, camphor-like scent.
