Scent A fruity, intensely sweet, lemony scent. Blends well with Vetivert, Palmarosa, Orange, and other citrus oils, Neroli and Frankincense.
Traditional May Chang can be used to clear painful obstructions from the digestive system and ease nausea and indigestion. In aromatherapy skin care it is used for oily skin and inflammatory conditions such as acne. It tones the skin and helps with cellulites. It can also be used to treat lower back pain. It is a wonderful oil to lift the spirit and clear dark clouds of depression, anxiety and fear.
Magical May Chang has a pubescent energy and can be used to connect with the spirit of rejuvenation. The secret of eternal youth has been the quest of the philosopher's stone - so far no certain remedy has been found. Yet, letting go of worries and fears and not taking things too seriously may be a secret approach to keeping the spirit young. May Chang can be used for spring festivals and rituals of renewal.
Litsea cubeba Due to the appearance of its little peppercorn like seeds May Chang is also known as 'Mountain Pepper'. It is actually a relative of Cinnamon and other fragrant members of the Laurel family. But unlike Cinnamon, its scent is fresh, sweet and lemony, almost like Lemon Verbena. In Chinese medicine, its leaves, bark and flowers have long been employed for various conditions. But using the essential oil, which is distilled form the seeds, for its medicinal purposes, is a relatively new trend. Previously its use, although widespread, was limited to scenting household cleaning products, soaps and various cosmetics. In recent years it has become popular with aromatherapists who like its sweet lemony fragrance, which is similar to Lemon Verbena but a little softer. It is even sometimes called 'Chinese' or 'Exotic' Verbena, but that name is confusing since the two plants belong to completely different families.
