LITSEA CUBEBA     May Chang     steam distilled fruit from China

     This is a Southeast Asian Chinese  native evergreen tree/shrub of the Lauraceae family that is also referred to as "mountain pepper”. It produces a fruit which is processed for its high citral content that gives it the lemony/fruity scent. There are numerous benefits attributed to this powerfully aromatic small berry.
It has an uplifting scent that is somewhat stimulating and very revitalizing. Many consider this essence as an anti- depressant as it will elevate the Spirit and relieve melancholic states as it cheers the mood.
 It is known as being anti inflammatory and analgesic, blending well in synergies with other like botanicals to increase these capabilities. The antiseptic and astringent qualities will help clear blemishes and skin eruptions. This remarkable botanical also contains anti- viral capabilities that will help diminish cold sores and other herpes symptoms. Circulation will be improved with the addition of this essential oil in massage & body blends as it will help to decongest the lymphatic system and benefit digestion and assimilation of nutrients. (Be cautious in the first trimester of pregnancy though.)
May Chang is known to be a lung tonic, enhancing respiratory wellness  and breathing. There is further study going on as to how this plant can assist in lung treatments, negating certain diseases. As an insecticidal this is very pleasant and known to be effective as an insect repellant, including mosquitoes, fleas and ticks.
