Plant Description
Litsea Cubeba (May Chang) essential oil is also commonly referred to by the tree's botanical name: Litsea. The essential oil is steam distilled from the seeds of a small tropical tree native to native to Vietnam, China and other parts of Southeast Asia. Also known as mountain pepper, exotic verbena, and tropical verbena, the tree is known for its scented flowers and foliage, and small berries shaped like peppers. The aroma is often compared to Lemongrass, though it is considered by many to be finer, and may be the better choice from a purely aromatic standpoint.

The small aromatic fruits begin in a green form, which as it matures, will change from a red and then to a dark brown upon ripening. When dried and collected prior for distillation, they look similar to a large form of dried black peppercorn, which is then steam distilled to acquire the essential oil. Notably all parts of the fragrant tree, including the flowers, branches, bark, twigs, roots and the leaves are a source of essential oil, but do not possess the quality odour as derived from the dried fruit.
