Olfactive Description: Fresh Lemon, Green, Grassy
Grassy and lemon fresh, Litsea Cubeba is an uplifting essential oil. Made from the fruit of the litsea cubeba, the steam distillation process produces a fragrant lemony, green, and fresh essential oil with grassy notes. This essential oil is also known as May Chang and originates from China and South East Asia.
We recommend this essential oil for use in candles, wax melts, and tarts. It also makes cheerful bar and liquid soap, scrubs, lotion, and perfume. An added bonus, this fresh scent performs well in reed diffusers, too.
Candle Maker’s Notes:
A top performing essential oil in soy wax, we found this Litsea Cubea to have a strong hot throw in soy wax that highlights the lemon accords.
