We calculate the enveloping Lie algebras of Leibniz algebras of dimensions two and three. We show how these Lie algebras could be used to distinguish non-isomorphic (nilpotent) Leibniz algebras of low dimension in some cases. These results could be used to associate geometric objects (loop spaces) to low dimensional Leibniz algebras.
