Litsea Essential Oil

A small tree from asia with spicy fruits and fragrant leaves and flowers. Litsea is also known as May Chang or Mountain Spike Tree. It was in the 1950’s that the oil was first distilled from the pepper like fruits. Litsea is similar to Lemongrass, but a little less “fatty” and the scent doesn’t tend to linger as long as Lemongrass.
