MARKET INFO of Litsea Terpenes

Latest Market Info: Aug, 2023

As this is the beginning of the distillation season, heavy rains in growing regions such as Central China are not good for oil yields and material quality. These rains have also disrupted berry picking and distillation operations. It’s currently too soon to know the exact effects of wet weather, but indicative initial pricing is almost 20% higher than last year.

Description of Litsea Terpenes

Extracted from the essential oils of the Litsea Cubeba plant, Litsea Terpenes impart an intensely fresh and citrusy aroma. Similar to the oils from which they are derived, litsea terpenes have a sweet and uniform drydown, though they retain a much drier and terpenic odor. Litsea Cubeba is also known as Chinese “May Chong” in some regions due to the plant’s historical origins.
