Laurel Berry Oil comes from a large flowering shrub native to the Mediterranean region commonly known as a bay tree, bay laurel, or laurel. The berries are described as small, shiny, and black. Laurel berry fruit is pressed and water-extracted to obtain a thick base oil of pale yellow, greenish yellow, or olive green color that is used for making the popular Aleppo soap. Aleppo soap is made with olive oil, laurel berry oil base, lye, and water. This ancient oil contains strong antibacterial properties and is widely used in Middle Eastern cultures for skin and hair problems such as Acne, Dry skin, Eczema, Rashes, Psoriasis, Rosacea, Fungal Infections and Arthritis. According to Wikipedia, Laurel Oil was used as an alternative medicine in Roman times for variety of conditions and was mentioned to treat: paralysis, spasms, sciatica, bruises, headaches, catarrhs, ear infections, and rheumatism.

Beautiful, earthy scent. Amazing properties, as the description says. Highly recommended!
Love this oil… I made my first batch of soap with it and the aroma is indeed unique. Warm, earthy, and spicy like black pepper. Shipping was also quick which is very important to me. Google about this oil, it’s very interesting. This is NOT the essential oil, so be careful in your search.
Love this stuff. Smells just like it should, a spicy, raw earth, mediterranean scent. Like nature’s perfume, rather than aroma chemicals.
This oil is fantastic. Some people don’t like the earthy scent but I found it quite nice. It performed very nicely in my Aleppo style soap.
My new favorite oil to make my new favorite soap…This oil smells so warm, spicy and almost smoky. I love it! Smells delicious in my Aleppo Soap.

Thanks for the fast delivery! This is a very high quality laurel oil! I just made my first batch using salt water… looking forward to curing for 9 months +
Love this exotic oil. My soaping was complete when i finally was able to purchase this oil to make my aleppo soap . Coming from Syria and being raised with this soap i know its one of the best soaps in the world but being in australia hard to source this oil.Thanks Jenny for stocking it its a brillant oil not only to use in soap but for my eczema and psoriasis balms .

I just got my Laurel Berry oil in today. Smells very earthy. I went straight to my soaping corner. Had my recipe figured out since I ordered it. I did a 25%laurel berry oil and 75% olive oil. Debated over H.P. or C.P. The C.P. won. It is in gel mode right now. I may go ahead and do a 3Lb. batch H.P. Thanks for stocking this oil. I do no like to order from ebay or amazon. I know where to get this oil now.

Just received my order a few days sooner than originally expected! Great earthy smell, almost like upturned moss in the coast range of Oregon!! Can’t wait to mix up another batch of soap. Scent is much better than the LBO that you get from Am@=*n, and also at a better price per oz!!
I had ordered to give a try from this seller. The product should’ve been thick not liquid. Mine was liquidy it’s seems like defected batch. I emailed the company never got respond. I don’t recommend this seller. At least respond to your customers.

Hello, we appreciate your review. The laurel berry oil will be liquid if the temp is above 70 degrees. Any temp below that it becomes solid. It is not defected but perfectly fine and will need to be warmed well to get it all out of the bottle. We looked but did not receive a email concerning the product. We would have responded.
