Take for instance, bay leaves.
Bay leaves have a century-long tradition of being part of natural medicine. Their exceptional medicinal properties such as strong anti-inflammatory and soothing properties were recognized and widely used even by the ancient Greeks.
In addition, it was believed that bay leaves can support the treatment of epilepsy.
Even today, many natural medicine practitioners acknowledge the amazing health benefits of bay leaves, which include reduction of hypertension, protection against insomnia and stress, as well as control over blood cholesterol levels.
To reap the health benefits of bay leaves, you can add them to your meals when being cooked, or you can carefully light them in a heat-resistant bowl and let the aroma slowly spread around the house.
Burning bay leaves is highly beneficial for relaxing your muscles, calming your mind and improving your mood.
