To the ancient Greeks, Bay Leaves represented great athletic and literary achievement and was either worn about the head in a wreath or was presented in a ceremony of recognition. The herb was also associated with enhancing memory, so Greek students often wore strands of bay leaves around their heads to help recall information during exams. It is also believed that bay leaves may provide other health benefits.*
Some consumers prepare tea with bay leaves, add bay leaves to their baths, or crush bay leaves into a skin cream. Bay leaves have also been used by some to treat cancer, gas, dandruff, and joint pain or boils (for which bay leaves have been used topically on the skin).*
