Bay Laurel

Ancient Greek mythology relates the tale of the sun god Apollo who pursued the uninterested nymph Daphne. Apollo was relentless until the gods granted her mercy by turning her into a laurel, or bay tree. The Greeks still refer to the tree that bears the bay leaf as Daphne. Apollo's priestess and Oracle of Delphi, is said to have chewed bay leaves as part of the ritual to foresee the future. Magically, bay laurel is used in Spells for increasing psychic ability, for purification and for strength.
