Bay leaf is an evergreen related to camphor and sassafras trees. It's also known as sweet bay and laurel. Enjoy its sweet, balsamic scent and bitter/spicy bite in gravies and grain dishes, with beans and meats, and in cooking blends like bouquet garni.

Suggested Use

Add one or two leaves are adequate flavoring for most dishes of six servings--add to water when stewing chicken or poaching fish, or while cooking soups, stews, or gravies. Bay leaf should be added early on, because it takes a while for its flavor to permeate the food. And be sure to remove the leaves before serving; they're sharp and can be dangerous if accidentally swallowed.

Bay perks up tomato sauces, pickles, meats, fish, and bean and grain dishes. It's a key ingredient in French and Mediterranean dishes, including French bouillabaisse and bouquet garni. Many cooks add several bay leaves to containers of stored grains and beans to repel grain beetles, and some homemakers add them to boxes of stored clothing to repel moths. Crafters sometimes use the leaves in potpourris and wreaths.


Storage: If your bay leaves have turned grey, it's because they've lost their chlorophyll during storage. Replace them with fresh leaves, and store the new batch in airtight containers, away from light.

iHerb Customer Reviews

The leaves were of good quality.

I throw in a few leaves into my rice as I read that they prevent rice weevils. I also line my kitchen cabinets with them. With such a big bag, I will be able to change the leaves once in 2 months.

Thanks for your feedback!

Excellent choice-Kosher - extremely fresh and sweet- make an excellent tea- you really dont need an infuser- use fresh spring water that is pure- bottle spring water etc. run it thrugh the coffee maker- 'say 8 cups of water , per cup of water use 3 whole fresh leaf , drop a couple or 3 leaves in the filter holder- let it begin it's cycle , when there is a skiff of hot water in the bottom of the pot then drop in at least 3 whole fresh leaves per each cup of fresh pure water into the pot- 18 whole leaves - let the coffee maker run the 8 cups of water trough and over the say 4 whole leaves in the filter holder. Let it set and draw as they float on top of the water for at least an hour or loger- not to long because it will look pale but will become slightly bitter edged- stir gently 2=3 minutes leave it set and settle- then strain/ filter into a container / glass pitcher or jar etc. it is now fresh strained pure and ready to use - sweeten with your favorite 100% pure wild honey, only about 1 tea spoon per 6-8oz serving. I use CC Pollen Wild Honey "Fine Select Visionary Collected from the Sonoron Desert- Sonoron Desert Honey from iHerb.com it is super sweet and is slightly grainy but melts as smooth as any other honey- it will crystlize if you leave it for a very long period (don't get a chance to with me) however just put the jar in a hot water bath and in just a few minutes it will liquify. Excellent Honey also Very sweet I use 1 tea spoon per 11-12 oz serving of bay leaf tea. This tea is excellent antient used for many things but I use this mix for intestinal dietary and bile and the cecreations of other dietary juices vital for digestion and related issues even to sooth a sour stomach and for constipation etc.
