Litsea, May Chang (Litsea cubeba) China

Litsea, May Chang
Litsea cubeba

Origin: China

Part Used: Fresh ripe fruit

Extraction Method: Steam distilled

Aromatic Notes: Citrusy with sweet, fruity and peppery undertones.

Uses and Insights: Listea essential oil is often referred to as May Chang; the scent remarkably citrusy but is in fact a member of the Lauraceae family (cousin of bay laurel). Litsea also has aromatic hints of lemongrass and citronella. Distilled from the small pepper-like fruits of the tropical litsea tree, this oil is used in both aesthetic and practical aromatherapy applications.

Tap one drop onto the palm of your hand, rub your palms together, cup over nose and inhale deeply.
Add a few drops to a tissue and place in your pillowcase for an aromatic night’s sleep.
Add a few drops to a tissue and tuck into the vent of your car. Turn on the heat or AC and diffuse pure aromatherapy into your driving experience.
Add a few drops to unscented lotion, body or bath oil to bring aromatherapy to your personal care routine.
