Never heard of May Chang essential oil? Can't blame you! For the longest time, this oil has been listed under its botanical name Litsea cubeba. Also known as “mountain pepper,” "exotic verbena" or "tropical verbena", May Chang essential oil is derived from the evergreen tree native to Southeast Asia.
Although it's not part of the citrus family, many people are raving over its happy fragrance. Described as a cross between lemon and vanilla with hints of lemongrass, this oil has a bright, fresh, and heartwarming aroma. Feeling down in the dumps? Add May Chang to your diffuser and beat the emotional funk!
Oily and acne-prone skin? Introduce May Chang into your skincare regimen! It has skin cleansing and skin clarifying properties that can be attributed to its mild astringent properties. It's beneficial for removing excess oil that can clog the pores and result in acne, blackheads, whiteheads, and other skin impurities.
One of the most versatile oils you can own, May Chang has antifungal, antiviral, insecticide, and antiseptic properties too. Use it to repel insects, treat digestive-related issues, and keep common infections like colds and coughs at bay.

Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
