Lore:History Bay Laurel has been used to repel weevils, moths, fleas and lice, as well as hanging small bunches to preotect from evil spirits, like poltergeists. It was prized in purification rituals, and as a symbol of scholarly excellence. The wreath or crown of Laurel was presented to the top acheivers in their fields.
Medicinally, it historically has been used to stimulate the uterus, added to the bath to relax sore muscles and joints, as well as being applied to the chest in a paste or unguent to relieve congestion.
