Despite its sweet, fresh, and lemony aroma, Litsea Cubeba Essential Oil is extracted from the fruit of a tree in the laurel family rather than in the citrus family. It is believed to encourage relaxation and uplift the mood while also helping to combat negative emotions. Used topically, Litsea is known to soothe acne-prone skin by balancing oil production and boosting skin cell regeneration. In soapmaking, Litsea Cubeba Essential Oil can help to enhance the aroma of citrus oils and give all fragrance blends more staying power in the finished bar.
