Oil of the Month - May Chang (Litsea Cubeba)
To all of our lovely followers, thank you for bearing with us whilst we have been going through our period of transition.
Starting from this month, we are going to be highlighting our "oil of the month". To kick us off, this month, we are writing about May Chang (litsea cubeba).
Litsea Cubeba is Erin's favourite of all of the essential oils.
She believes this to be a savoir for modern day living. In our fast paced, sleep deprived world with too much stimulation causing fatigue, lack of mental clarity and anxiety, this is a must use oil. Known as the Oil of Tranquility, it is a stimulating, uplifting, refreshing oil that calms body and mind. It has a tonic effect on the nervous system which eases symptoms of stress such as anxiety, confusion, inability to concentrate and fatigue of the body.
As many essential oils have a great effect for reducing stress, we particularly love to use this oil when our minds and/or hearts are racing. It is a great oil to use in the work place every day, when you're feeling down, lethargic or uncomfortable.
As an added bonus, it elicits feelings of happiness with it's fresh happy scent, and even better, it's safe for use during pregnancy, and postpartum if you have the baby blues, to uplift and bring feelings of happiness.
