Litsea, Litsea cubeba (1980)
The sweet lemony aroma of May Chang is pleasant and very insistent. It is an inexpensive oil that may be added to blends for strengthening respiratory and digestive systems, with special emphasis on the spleen and pancreas. It is anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory. Psychologically it helps to reduce irritability, pessimism and cynicism. It contains citrals, which can be irritating to the skin if used in high concentrations, so dilute it well. This is a pure therapeutic-quality aromatherapy essential oil produced using wild-crafted plants and traditional methods from China, and is obtained from the fruit of the tree.
