Nowadays, some of the most common problems for everyone are stress and anxiety, so as usually, nature has its own way to help. Simply burn a bay leaf and see as it helps you relax!
Bay leaves come from the laurel plant, originally native to the Mediterranean. Burning a single bay leaf will help you relax and relieve your stress and anxiety in only 5 minutes! It sounds impossible, but try it and you’ll see it’s true!
The stress-relieving properties of bay leaves were first discovered by Gennady Malakhov, a famous Russian scientist. Bay leaves are commonly used during food preparation since they have a nice flavor and fragrance, but they are also used in aromatherapy as well as herbal treatments for different skin conditions. They are naturally soothing and can help you calm down and relax.
Here’s how you can use them to relieve anxiety and stress: Take a dry bay leaf and burn it in your room. Go out and leave it for 10 minutes. When you go back in, you will notice a calm atmosphere created by the relaxing smoke. Burning the leaf releases certain substances that will create a positive energy flow. Just breathe in the smoke deeply and you’ll soon feel it calms you down!
