May Chang E.O.

Postby Sole_Purpose on Tue Dec 02, 2008 10:41 am

Have any of you that practice Aromatherapy heard of May Chang E.O.? ...from the botanical Litsea cubeba (Laurel family), used for heat clearing and calming the mind.

Wondering if you've heard of it and if you've used it - feedback? I am inquiring for my Veterinarian (who is wholistic and practices Acupuncture).

TIA for your input! :smt045

I use litsea cubeba on occasion, and really love it. I have never used it with pets, though, as I have cats. What kind of feedback, exactly, are you looking for? I use it in my homemade deodorant and it is very nice for that!

I have used mai chang. I had one client years ago who just loved it.

I typically will use lemongrass instead...based strictly on the aroma not on the attributes.

I don't have knowledge of essential oils for animals.

Thanks to you both!

I am enrolled in an animal wellness program that emphasizes herbs, aromatherapy (essential oils) and flower essences. All of which I have experience with but this course takes it to another level. Beyond this course, I will be seeking professional aromatherapy and flower essence certification courses. It's time to bring those aspects into what I do.

I am partnering with my Vet who is going out on her own and specializing in canine rehab and Acupuncture. She asked me if I had any experience with or thoughts on that essential oil...which I don't and it sounds like it's from a Chinese herb. So, I came here for some feedback from the Aromatherapists!

Although they may be administered differently (as a massage oil blend w/carrier oil, or a body spritz with witch hazel, or as an infused aroma for the animal's environment), typically the oils have the same physical and mental health benefits/effect on animals as humans - with the exception of cats.

Thanks again! :D

May Chang

I have used May Chang for over a year now.
It is a wonderful oil that has an amazing scent.
It worked amazing for me when I was dealing with Pregnancy depression.

QUALITIES: Very uplifting, good for skin care, especially oily skin, good as air freshener, great if you add to the bath, refreshing and deodorizing.

A member of the Lauraceae family, related to the Laurel, Rosewood and Cinnamon trees. An evergreen tree or shrub. It produces small white flower and a fruit which resembles a pepper corn. Rich in citral
