What happens if you burn a bay leaf in your home

We commonly use various herbs to savor our dishes without even assuming that these kitchen ingredients can also be used for other purposes as well. Take for instance, bay leaves. I bet not many of you know that the distinct smell these leaves provide has an incredibly soothing effect on the human body. By doing so and inhaling the smell (not the smoke directly), you open yourself up to a number of awesome benefits. These include the following.

The amazing stress- relieving properties of bay leaves were discovered by a Russian scientist,Gennady Malakhov. Fresh or dried bay leaves are used in cooking for their distinctive flavor and fragrance, but they are also used in medical treatments, in aromatherapy and herbal treatments for various skin and respiratory conditions.

Health Benefits of Smudging Bay Leaf

This ancient practice provides a wide range of benefits. These are some of the most prominent ones:
-Calms the nervous system.
-Reduces pain.
-Strengthens the immune system.
-Increases and stimulates the sweating process.
- Boosts overall mental activity.
-Treats varicose veins and painful joints.
-Repels insects and cockroaches.

One of the least commonly known benefits of bay leaves is their naturally soothing quality. Excess stress hormones can be dangerous for long-term health, so bay leaves can help you calm down and remain relaxed even in your most high-anxiety moments.

Additionally, they effectively release the airways, control cholesterol levels, reduce stress, treats insomnia, and regulate high blood pressure.

In order to enjoy the benefits of bay leaves, you can cook them in some boiling water and add them to meals. Also, you can carefully light bay leaves in a bowl, put out the fire, and let the aroma spread your home.

Furthermore, they are extremely efficient cockroach repellents. Their smell keeps cockroaches at bay, and they are safe for both, your children and pets. You can distribute bay leaves in the garden or kitchen, or in every corner of the house as they are non-toxic.

You can choose to use them dry or fresh, but for better effects, use dry ones, as their smell is stronger.
