The sharp and complex lemony aroma of May Chang has fruity and spicy undertones, and is uplifting and energizing. Possessing "euphoric" properties, it has been shown in clinical trials to calm anxiety and promote mental wellness. It is a top note with a strong aroma.

  • can assist digestive complaints
  • its ability to promote circulation makes it a good choice for muscular aches and pain, or for post-workout massage blends
  • with a wonderfully refreshing aroma, May Chang is energizing and invigorating to the senses, making it a perfect addition to an aromatherapy inhaler when a boost of positive energy is needed
