Place oven rack in lowest position; preheat oven to 325F. Combine first 6 ingredients for seasoning rub; set aside. Line shallow roasting pan with heavy aluminum foil. Place rack in pan. Rinse turkey; pat dry. Sprinkle about 1/2 of the herb rub into turkey cavities then stuff with onion and bay leaves. Place turkey, breast-side up, in prepared pan; brush with oil. Spread remaining seasoning rub over turkey. Add 1/2 cup water to pan. Cover loosely with heavy aluminum foil. Roast 3 to 3 1/2 hours, basting occasionally with pan juices. Turkey is done when meat thermometer inserted in breast reaches 170F (180F in thigh). Remove turkey from oven, let stand about 20 minutes. Reserve pan juices to spoon over turkey or to make gravy. (See gravy recipe under sauces).
