Litsea Cubeba, more commonly known as May Chang, is a small tree native to Southern China and tropical Southeast Asia. The essential oil is derived from the small, pepper-like fruits. The scent of Litsea Cubeba oil can be compared to Lemongrass, although the former is often described as “finer” and “sweeter” than the latter.
It has gentle astringent properties, which work to cleanse your pores, its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory action minimizes and heals existing flare-ups. Litsea Cubeba is naturally anti-fungal and antibacterial, which makes it a great treatment for athletes foot, ringworm, or any other type of fungal infection.
Listsea Cubeba can induce relaxation and reduce stress, while creating a calm, peaceful feeling.
