Health benefits of Litsea Cubeba

Have you been introduced to the health benefits of Litsea Cubeba, found in our famous Aches and Pains Get Lost Genie? The Bellabaci Genies  are our range of luscious lotions which turn into a luxurious treatment oil on application, and it doesn’t even stain your clothes!

Although the name speaks for itself on what the Aches and Pains Get Lost Genie is for, the benefits don’t stop there at all. When our medical research team were carefully selecting which concerns should be addressed, they made sure that all bases will be covered to improve your health and well-being with one simple application.

There are quite a few special ingredients in this formula, but one worth talking about is Litsea Cubeba, also known as May Chang or Chinese Pepper. This essential oil is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and it is also grown in the east. It is extracted from the fruit by steam distillation and has a very pleasant and sweet citrus fragrance which is also widely used in high end perfumes around the world.

What is Litsea Cubeba essential Oil used for?

It has many therapeutic benefits and it’s most popular use is for the treatment of colds and flues. A study published by PLOS ONE also found that it may inhibit the growth and proliferation of lung cancer cells by inhaling the vapors from this wonderful essential oil. It also measures very high in its’ anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory status, making it a great choice for:

  • Body odour and excessive perspiration
  • Athlete’s Foot
  • Colds, respiratory infections, coughing and flu
  • Skin infections and inflammation
  • Digestive upsets, indigestion and flatulence
  • Insect repellent
  • Acne breakouts

Due to the fact that it is also a nerve tonic, scientific studies have proven that it can assist in the treatment for arrhythmia and it also induces feelings of relaxation, helping in against the onslaught of seasonal blues and emotional upsets. This also contributes to a more restful sleep and mental clarity.

Anyone can benefit from the Bellabaci Aches and Pains Genie, and you can use it with the Bellabaci Body Cups, our hand-squeezed vacuum suction cups, based on the treatment successes of Ancient Chinese Cupping, for a powerful double treatment. The Aches and Pains Get Lost Kit or the Aches and Pains Get Lost Combo also makes a great gift to a loved one, so treat someone well this Festive Season!

Happy Cupping!kiss
