Lemon Pepper Tree
Zanthoxylum acanthopodium, Rutaceae
Essential oil

The fragrance of fruits of the lemon pepper tree resembles citrus but with a complex hint of hidden scents that remind of tropical mountain forests in spring.

The trees grow in forests of Xishuangbanna and the Lahu ethnic minority of the area is collecting the fruits and taking care of the trees.

Lemon pepper essential oil is of light yellow colour.

The hydrosol of lemon-pepper is coloured yellow with a green touch. It holds a very pleasant aroma from volatile essential oils. In our household we found the hydrosol particularly useful for: keeping ants away from our tables (particularly the tiny ants that have a tendency to climb into our computers); repelling mosquitoes, freshening shoes, and as a wonderfully scented skin freshener. Our grandma is using it for preserving food and in daily cooking. It is rare to find a product with so many uses and that fills the air with a volatile and gentle aroma, which the whole family appreciates.

The tropical mountain forests of Xishuangbanna, Yunnan, China, are the home of thousands of species with a potential to develop health and cosmetics products.

The TianZi Biodiversity Research & Development Centre is devoting its work to finding these species, researching their potential, farm them in forest-farming ecosystems, and find market outlets.

Traditional and modern processing technologies are applied depending on crops and quality requirements of the market.

For distilling essential oil we are using high quality copper for a traditionally designed distilling apparatus. You can see the distill here.

Through buying our products you are contributing to save these species from extinction.

Your ecologically friendly production:
proudly traceable!

Imagine, the traceability of your products leads your customers to the tropical jungles of the Mekong river and to the Himalayan mountains where Tibet meets Yunnan. Immerged in diverse culture and rich biodiversity, your customers can visit the places and people where your products start from pristine soils, clean air, and where they support the livelihood of local ethnic communities.

Would this add to the sustainability and credibility of your business?

Would your trademark benefit from international research publications lauding your company's involvement in saving the rain forest?

If you are in the food, cosmetics, flower, herbal, and medical business, certifying your products as contributing to biodiversity protection will be an advantage with a competitive edge.

The TianZi Biodiversity Centre is working with German Universities to design land use systems, which are bound to change paradigms: we promote rare agro-biodiversity species, manage complexity, and find alternatives to destructive forms of mono culture.

If all this is in line with your company's business concept - please contact us.
