Fresh Bay Leaf ... FiRE TONiC™ ingredient #13

Good enough for Ancient Greece and Good enough for us now.

Bay leaves are those aromatic green leaves often found floating in soups and stews, these fragrant leaves have been cherished for thousands of years. The bay tree was discovered by the Ancient Greeks over 3,000 years ago and was brought back to Greece and Rome for cultivation. The leaves were considered sacred in Greek and Roman cultures and were revered for their medicinal properties and we love them in our FiRE TONiC™ too.
