Litsea is also a great fixative for flighty citrus oils in CP soap. As it's already citrusy smelling, you can combine it with your citrus EOs before adding to the rest of your EOs. It really kept the lime in my cedar-lime salt bar. Cost-effective as well.
Fresh, citrus smell EO.
Crisp citrus scent, close to lemon with a lemongrass undertone. Holds well in CP soap. Lovely on its own & blends well with many other essential oils, great price and quality.
A Must Have
I use litsea cubeba to anchor scents, straight, and mixed with lavender and tea tree. It's a staple that I have on-hand at all times. The versatility is a big plus. I like the lemon-like smell better than actual lemon in my blends and find that the litsea lasts quite a bit longer. It is a great addition to most citrus scents and many herbal (mint, rosemary, etc).
I did some research on oils to use in a citrus blend for CP soap that would have some staying power. Enter litsea. It's a top note but can help fix other citrus. It's limey with a hint of lemon perhaps and some wood notes. I use it in a blend to help make lemongrass less grassy and more like citrus. Coriander is nice as well, hints of without being citrus and therefore easily dissipated. Yummy, so glad to have discovered it.
A must for citrus cold pressed soap
Litsea cubeba is a new essential oil for me. I have had problems in the past keeping citrus scents in my cold pressed soap. I have read that adding litsea cubeba to the batch will fix the citrus oils. I tried it and was so excited that my soaps kept the aroma, complimented by the beautiful aroma of Litsea cubeba. I am going to be incorporating this oil in other products I may have usually used lemon grass.
Sweet, spicy and citrus scent
The only place that sells this EO. It is quite popular in Asia country. It has very nice benefit for skin and for oily hair. I use this one for CP Soap and shampoo. Thank you for carrying this product.
Very sweet & helps citrus stick!
To me it smells slightly citrusy and very sweet. I use this in a CP citrus-mint soap. I've read citrus E.O.'s fade quickly in soap. I still don't know what they're talking about. Mine last so long and I feel this E.O. is responsible for that.
Curious about litsea
Litsea cubeba...not a straight forward name like most, but nothing deceptive about the scent! I was intrigued by the description of this oil, especially learning that it is a "relative" of rosewood. I LOVE it: similar to lemongrass but more fruity and less herbal. Blended smoothly into my CP soap recipe.
I had never heard of this when I first decided to order a small amount to play with. It is an amazing oil! Now I find myself adding it to so many scent blends.
I can't believe there's no reviews on this great e/o yet! More than half of my formulations have this little gem of oil in the mix. The price is awesome and this oil goes a long way...just a little is all it takes.
