Excellent blender to keep in stock
Litsea Cubeba was in a smapler kit. I have ordered more. Wonderful light, and blends so well, like a very soft sort of bergamot, citrus but soft. It lightens other blends. It is a good price. For soaps, use in rebatching or whipped soap as CP and HP may be too hard on this delicate oil.

Love the smell but...
I ordered this and just recently received it. Unfortunately the cap wasn't on good and about 2/3 of it leaked all over the place. I contacted BB about this but still haven't heard back from them. So I never did get to use this but I do really like the scent.

Love the litsea
I really love the Litsea essential oil. I have been using it in my lotions and Fragrance mist, and also in my Goat milk soaps. They smell so wonderful, and I get a lot of requests for that fragrance. I have always called it Lemon Verbena and was shocked to find out that it was another herb completely! Ooops! I grow my own Lemon Verbena plant and it smells identical. Is there a large difference between each? Because it is great for oily skin as well as Lemon Verbena.

Hi Karen! I'm so glad you love our Litsea Essential Oil. Litsea Cubeba is used for a lemon scent and the plant is similar to the Lemon Verbena plant. Though, they are not exactly the same. I will email you to discuss this further!

LOVE This one....
This EO is great for blending or as a stand alone scent. It's not too strong and not too light. As the comments state, it's uplifting with a great lemon smell, something I would use year round. I used this in my CP soap and had no issues. Highly recommend.

Hi Gloria! Listea does have a great lemon and orange smell and sticks well in cold process soap. I'll be emailing you personally to discuss this issue!
