Litsea (May Chang) Historical Snippets:

Although it may smell much like Lemon verbena and Lemongrass essential oils, Litsea (otherwise known as May Chang), differs in aromatic properties. It has been widely used throughout Taiwan and China as a remedy for asthma, digestive problems, headaches and chills. In fact, Litsea is the main essential oil produced by the Chinese.

Shelf Life of Litsea Essential Oil: 

Our freshly decanted Litsea essential oil will last for 2-3 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly:

Primary Storage Considerations:

Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation)

Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.

Secondary Storage Considerations:

Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.


Adored for its fresh citrus smell, Litsea essential oil may help you relax.

Litsea essential oil has a crisp ‘lemony’ smell. Its anti-inflammatory and calming properties may help you release muscular tension and it may also act as a tonic and stimulant.

Blends perfectly with Ginger, Bergamot, Rose, Rosewood, Geranium, Basil and Ylang Ylang.
