May Chang Essential Oil


AWO’s May Chang Essential Oil, also known as ‘Litsea Cubeba Oil’, offers an incredibly refreshing lemon-like, citral aroma that is delightfully crisp, fruity and sweet, and is commonly likened to the invigorating and enlivening scent of Lemon Myrtle Essential Oil.


Steam distilled from the fresh pepper-like fruits of the Litsea Cubeba tree, May Chang is native to South East Asia and was first cultivated in China and Indonesia. Not to mention, this incredibly precious oil is rich in powerful essential oil benefits that are known to assist in all aspects of life, from health and wellbeing to skincare and cleaning. In fact, because of these powerful healing properties, May Chang Oil has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries.


• When it comes to aromatherapy, the benefits of May Chang Oil are primarily known to stimulate the mind whilst alleviating mental fatigue and exhaustion. This makes it the perfect essential oil to have diffusing in any office or study space.


• Through topical application, various May Chang Essential Oil benefits have also been seen to alleviate digestive problems, muscle aches and joint pains.


• Due to its incredibly powerful antiseptic, antifungal and astringent properties, May Chang Oil is also prominent when it comes to skincare. These properties are particularly beneficial for acne and oily prone skin types.


• The antiseptic, antibacterial and antiviral properties also make May Chang Essential Oil an effective natural cleaning agent.


Not to mention, May Chang Essential Oil blends well with a variety of different essential oils, particularly herb-scented oils. To create a pleasant and balanced essential oil blend, combine May Chang with Basil essential oil, Lavender, Rose Geranium, Sweet Orange, Rose and Ylang Ylang essential oils. In addition, May Chang Oil blends well with Bergamot, Clary Sage, Petitgrain, Ginger, and Rosemary essential oils.
