Litsea cubeba - Vietnam
May Chang is a member of the Laurel family, the small tree that is common throughout Asia. Also known as Litsea Cubeba oil, May Chang is a relative newcomer to the modern essential oil market but has been used traditionally in Chinese medicine for centuries.
Our uplifting fragrant essential oil is steam distilled from the ‘pepper-corn shaped’ fruits that this tropical tree produces. It also bears pale white or yellow flowers, which are also lemon-scented. This oil has a wonderful complex lemony, slightly fruity aroma. Smelling very airy, light and sweet, Monara’s very lively May Chang comes from Vietnam.
