Origin

India


The west India bay leaf- Pimenta racemosa-is much more fragrant and aromatic then its Turkish, Indonesia, California or Indian cousins. Its flavor is intense and highly spiced, with complex notes of cinnamon, clove and nutmeg along with hints of vanilla and cardamom. If you rub the leaves, the distinctive scent will remain on your fingers for hours. 

A member of the myrtle family, Pimenta racemosa-commonly called the bay rum tree-provides ornamental value to landscapes with its peeling gray bark and dark green oval leaves. The leaves emit a woody, spicy fragrance that becomes stronger when crushed.

The bay rum tree has tolerance for salty soils and wind, making it a fitting choice for coastal landscape. Hardy in U.S. Departments of agriculture plant hardness zone 10 through 11, this tropical evergreen grows in full to partial sunlight and fast-draining, nutrient-rich soils.

Safety advice

Recommended dermal maximum of 0.9%, based on 56.2% eugenol content and a limit of 0.5%. our oral maximum is based on 1.4% methyl eugenol, and a limit of 0.01 mg/kg/day.

Organ-specific effects

·        Adverse skin reaction:  tested at 10% on 25 volunteers West Indian Bay Oil was neither irritating nor sensitizing. Eugenol is a potential cause of skin sensitization in dermatitis patients.

·        Cardiovascular effects: Eugenol inhibits platelet aggregation, an essential step in the blood clotting cascade. 

Systematic effects

·        Acute toxicity: West Indian bay oil acute oral LD50 in rats 1.8 g/kg; acute dermal LD50 in rabbits>5 mL/kg.

·        Antioxidant/pro-oxidant activity: West India bay oil inhibited lipid peroxidation, and scavenged both DPPH radicals and OH radicals (0.6 mg/mL), almost as efficiently as eugenol. Eugenol and chavicol are potent antioxidants in lipid systems.

·        Carcinogenic/ anticarcinogenic potential: No information! Found. Methyl eugenol is a rodent hepatocarcinogen when exposure is sufficiently high; eugenol, (p)-limonene and linalool display anti-liver cancer activity in vitro, and in vivo for (p)-limonene in rats. 

Drug interactions: Anticoagulant medication, because of cardiovascular effects, above. Since eugenol significantly inhibits human MAO-A, oral doses of eugenol-rich essential oils may interact with pethidine, indirect sympathomimetics, MAOIs or SSRIs.

Caution

Only the leaves of Pimenta racemosa can be used in cooking, teas and essential oil. All other parts of the plant, including the small black berries surrounded by the lacy network of white flowers, are not edible and should not be ingested. Despite the name, the “rum” is not drinkable-it’s toxic.
