What is May Chang?

May Chang, commonly known as mountain pepper, exotic verbena, and tropical verbena is a small tropical tree native to China, Indonesia, Taiwan, and other parts of Southeast Asia. The tree is known for its beautifully-scented flowers and foliage, and its berries that look like little peppercorns. The aroma is most often compared to lemongrass but is considered to be lighter and sweeter. May Chang’s leaves, flowers, berries, and bark, have long been used in traditional Chinese practices, but it’s only recently that the essential oil has been used in aromatherapy.

History of May Chang

May Chang has been used for thousands of years in traditional Chinese practices. Other traditional uses include use in candles, soaps, perfumes, deodorants, and massage oils, which all go perfectly with May Chang’s lemony aroma. Today, the oil is also used in air fresheners and household cleaners, to provide a clean-smelling citrus scent.
