ALERT! Clearance priced essential oils may be packaged in opaque HDPE plastic bottles to reduce transit risk.

Litsea, also known as May Chang, is a very bright essential oil with a very soft, uplifting, fragrance.  Used by many as a less expensive alternative to the fragrance of Melissa or Lemon Verbena, though it does not compare to the complexity of either oil.  Some even prefer it to Lemongrass as it does not contain the chemical that causes the harsh scent in Lemongrass. 

Well known for its anti-inflammatory and calming character as well as for its anti-viral activity.  Also a great choice for insecticide blends.
