What is Litsea Cubeba Essential Oil?

Litsea Cubeba essential oil is extracted from the ripened and dried fruits of the Litsea Cubeba tree. The oil is also known as May Chang oil and its plant species is known as Chinese Pepper and Mountain Pepper. It is native to China, Indonesia and other parts of South East Asia and its cultivation and production are still almost entirely based in China.


Extracted via steam distillation from the berries of the Litsea Cubeba fruit, this pale yellow to yellow oil has a characteristic lemon-like fresh sweet aroma. The fragrance of the Litsea Cubeba fruit oil is often compared to Lemongrass, although it is sweeter than that of Lemongrass.

    I add May chang oil to the deodorant I make. I haven’t met anyone who dislike this scent yet.

    A beautiful, versatile oil which I've been using both in my diffuser (combined with Lavender purchased from N-Essentials) & in my homemade day moisturiser & facial oil.

    Received this oil as a free gift with my order in November 2018, and recently started using it in the diffuser at home as well as in homemade beauty products. What a wonderful, citrus-y scent and I was incredibly impressed with all the health benefits it provides . ll definitely be ordering this oil again & love it, and thank you N-Essentials for introducing it to me!!
