Bay Rum is made using oil extracted from the leaves of the West Indian bay tree, (Pimenta recemosa) Myrtle Family – also called wild cinnamon. Bay Essential Oil has a sweet, fresh and spicy scent.
From about 1900 to 1950, there was an extremely popular man’s cologne and aftershave called Bay Rum. In England, the application of bay rum after a haircut and shave was a matter of routine in almost all of the best barbershops, and in United States high schools, the delightful fragrance of bay rum cologne would often permeate the classroom where young men treated shaving as a matter of coming of age.
The Bay Rum scent originates in the West Indies, where sailors have been using the leaves of the bay tree for centuries. With the establishment of formal colonies in the West Indies, people came up with all sorts of creative ways to use local products, and bay rum was one of them. Bay Rum is a distillation of the leaves of Pimenta racemosa or the West Indian Bay Tree. Traditionally, the leaves have been steeped in rum to pull out their essential oils.
Today modern bay rum is made by blending distilled oils with a variety of tropical fragrances, leaving the rum out. The scent of bay rum is a very distinctive slightly woody, sweet, earthy scent, infused with aromatic spices. Bay Oil has calming and warming therapeutic properties and is helpful for skin and scalp conditions.
