Dr. Nick Notes
Litsea cubeba essential oil, also known as May Chang is a commonly grown plant often extracted for it’s high citral content in countries around the world, often for industrial and perfuming purposes. Litsea is very interesting as a unique flavor additive into gourmet food preparation adding notes similar to a tropical lime, very uplifting yet unwinds an overactive nervous system.
We’ve enjoyed blending Litsea cubeba for it’s lovely aromatic notes in botanical perfumery using low concentrations (can be a skin irritant) Its scent is immediately uplifting and rejuvenating and can be diffused in any environment to raise the vibration and elevate the mood. I’ve also observed noticeable dissipation of negative energies with applying a few drops to the fingertips and applying around the body’s auric field.
Try using a few drops infused into your favorite salad dressing, applying to savory cooked meals and other intriguing kitchen dishes. Delicious to the aromatic senses and calms the nervous system when diffused into an environment. Litsea cubeba is a less commonly known, much have for the essential oil collection!
