I love litsea oil it is an amazing fragrance it uplifts your mood. I am always giving as presents. Must have for diffuser. Once tried you will not be without it!

Delicate Scent

Subtle and long lasting. I add it to my hand cream and make a simple room freshener by blending it with lavender oil.

Beautiful oil, wonderful to smell as to me it smells like the kind of scent used in a luxurious Spa. Just lovely and going to be on order later today. Once you start using it you will find its properties very addictive, a beautifully calming perfume.

Sherbet lemons

Really lovely scent - reminiscent of sherbet lemons but in a good way. Exceptionally long lasting scent too.

Litsea oil !

This is my first time tgatvi ordered litsea oil, as I love a lemony citrus smell.

I fancied a change from Eucalyptus lemon. It is refreshing, but does not give the same uplifting and freshness that lemon Eucalyptus gives me.
