Words by Anny Schneider

St Thomas Bay essential oil is known to slow hair loss, promote hair growth and limit dandruff.

It blends well into hair masks, (incorporated in a vegetable oil) or into shampoo or conditioner.

Analgesic and anti-inflammatory, it is a very warming oil, used diluted in a vegetable oil before applying it to the affected areas.

It is also called "West Indian bay tree" or "Bay Rum Tree".

Origin of this essential oil

Bay St. Thomas' essential oil is obtained by fruit distillation in Jamaica.


Keep away from children, air, heat and light.


Déconseillé en cas d'allergies à l'eugénol.

Déconseillé pour les femmes enceintes.

More information

Le bois St Thomas est appelé aussi "Bois de St Thomas", "bois d'Inde" ou "bay-rum".

C'est un arbre d'environ 20 m de haut qui produit des fleurs odorantes.

Il est cultivé sous tous les tropiques mais est originaire de la Caraïbe.

Le bois St Thomas a une place très importante dans la pharmacopée Américaine.

Ses feuilles, coriaces et odorantes, distillées dans le rhum, donnent le " Bay Rum ", lotion tonique utilisée en friction pour les rhumatismes, les refroidissements et en massage local, par les sportifs.

  • Le " Bay Rum " a été initialement fabriqué à Saint Thomas (Îles Vierges des États-Unis).
