Litsea cubeba is an evergreen tree or shrub belonging to the Lauraceae family. Its fruit produces Litsea—a lemon-like essential oil with a wide range of uses and benefits. Being native to East Asia, Litsea has a long history of traditional use by the indigenous people of Taiwan. Due to its high content of geranial and neral, Litsea essential oil has incredibly effective cleansing properties and is popular in topical use. When diffused, Litsea provides a rejuvenating, bright aroma to your day! Providing support and cleansing to the skin and other surfaces, Litsea essential oil is an excellent addition to your daily routine.
The aroma of Litsea pairs well with Lavender, Sandalwood, and Frankincense.
