Bay Rum Essential Oil

Add to Personalized Shopping List

Our pure, therapeutic quality Jamaican Bay Rum Essential Oil is golden yellow/amber in hue and is steam distilled from the leaves of Pimenta racemosa.

Within fragrancing applications and blending work, Bay Rum Essential Oil is considered a middle note. It is medium to strong in aromatic intensity and possesses a spicy, herbaceous scent that many also classify as masculine in aroma. It is especially well suited for soaps, after-shaves, colognes and other topical applications for men. It is also popular for inclusion in massage formulations and in formulations intended for overall wellness.

Bay Rum Essential Oil blends well with many other natural aromatics including essential oils within the wood, herbaceous, spice and citrus families.

Bay Rum Essential Oil is sometimes simply referred to as Bay Essential Oil. However, it is important not to confuse Bay Rum Essential Oil with that of Bay Laurel Essential Oil as both are different in properties and composition.

Below is a summary of the primary constituents present within our Bay Rum Essential Oil:

  • Eugenol (Phenol): 52.18%
  • Myrcene (Monoterpene): 19.47%

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
