Litsea Cubeba Essential Oil is a pale yellow liquid known for its crisp, earthy, fruity citrus scent. Extracted through steam distillation from the fruit of the litsea cubeba plant, this essential oil blends seamlessly with various oils, including lavender, basil, bergamot, petitgrain, rosemary, rosewood, ylang-ylang, and citrus scents. The small plant, native to East Asia, particularly China, features vibrant green leaves with a pleasant, lemony smell, producing small, pepper-like fruits from which the essential oil is derived.
