Protect yourself and your home from pests and other environmental threats, naturally. Absolute Aromas May Chang Essential Oil has a wonderful citrus aroma which uplifts, cleanses and tones. May Chang is an excellent insect repellent as well as antibacterial* (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/cbdv.200800349/full). Oil of May Chang is a comparatively new essential oil to the West. It is steam-distilled from the pepper-shaped fruits (Cubeba) of this tropical tree. The strong lemon aroma of the main constituent (Citral - 75%) dominates and hence the oil resembles Lemongrass, although it has a rounder and more fruity aroma. While the synonym Litsea Citrata is often given for May Chang, Litsea Citrata is a related species with a lower Citral content.
