ABOUT LITSEA CUBEBA
The Litsea plant (Litsea cubeba) is a member of the Lauraceae family that thrives in the wild. It produces a strong, crisp scent with citrus-lemony notes (D-limonene and citronellal). This plant is more commonly known as pahkak among the Bidayuh community, while the Kelabit and Lun Bawang people call it tenem.
Traditionally, different parts of the plant are used by the indigenous people of Sarawak for different purposes, such as flavouring for food or natural remedy for stomachache and backache.
