HIGH ALTITUDE NATURALS™ May Chang Essential Oil is steam distilled from the fresh fruits of Litsea Cubeba plant and yields a pale yellow liquid with a fresh, intensely lemony fragrance with fruity and spicy undertones, which is similar to, but much sweeter and more refined than lemongrass.
May Chang essential oil is also occasionally referred to as Exotic Verbena or Tropical Verbena, although despite the references to verbena, the plant is not related in any way to true verbena (Lippia citriodora). The association to this name would appear to be due to the similarity in fragrance.
May Chang oil has a long history of use in Chinese herbal medicine, perfumery, cosmetic, and flavor industries.. The oil's main component is citral, at 70–85%.
May Chang essential oil blends well with a wide range of other essential oils, introducing a lovely fresh lemon-citrus note. It can be tried with basil, bergamot, clary sage, geranium, ginger, jasmine, lavender, linaloe wood, petitgrain, rose, rosemary, ylang ylang and all citrus oils.
