Chinese Litsea Cubeba is the botanical name for May Chang, a tree bearing pale yellow flowers and fruits resembling peppercorns. The essential oil is extracted from these ripened and dried fruits. The scent of Litsea Cubeba oil can be compared to Lemongrass, but with a somewhat sharper citrus note.
Litsea Cubeba is widely used in the perfumery and cosmetic industry due to its enticing "lemony” fragrance. Like most citrus oils, its scent is immediately uplifting and rejuvenating.
Our Essential Oils are 100% pure and are never cut with cheap carrier oils.
While other suppliers may offer differing grades of essential oils, some cut with carrier oils, we only sell one type, pure, uncut, cosmetic grade essential oils. They are very potent, and should not be applied directly to the skin. Working with undiluted essential oils reduces the need to load your bases heavily which can result in issues with your finished product. For a light scent we recommend .3% , but it can be added up to 1% for those of you who prefer a strong scent.
Essentials By Catalina is not responsible for product compatibility. We encourage everyone to sample prior to committing to larger quantities. This allows for an opportunity to test the product for performance, compatibility, and safety.
