Yuzu Essential Oil
10 ML bottle
Yuzu essential oil is derived from the peel of the yuzu fruit, a citrus fruit native to East Asia, particularly Japan, Korea, and China. Known scientifically as Citrus junos, yuzu is a small, round fruit resembling a tangerine or grapefruit in appearance.
The essential oil is extracted through a process of cold pressing the peel of the yuzu fruit. It possesses a bright and uplifting aroma that is often described as a harmonious blend of citrus notes, including lemon, mandarin, and grapefruit, with subtle floral undertones.
Yuzu essential oil is highly valued for its aromatic properties and is commonly used in aromatherapy and fragrance applications. Its invigorating scent is believed to have mood-lifting and stress-reducing effects, promoting relaxation and mental clarity.
In Japanese culture, the aroma of yuzu is associated with feelings of tranquility and is often used during the winter season to bring a sense of warmth and comfort.
Apart from its aromatic qualities, yuzu essential oil also offers potential therapeutic benefits. It is known to possess antioxidant properties, which may help protect the body against oxidative stress and support overall well-being. Additionally, yuzu essential oil is rich in limonene, a compound that exhibits antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Due to its versatile nature, yuzu essential oil can be used in various applications. It can be diffused to create a refreshing and uplifting atmosphere, added to bathwater for a rejuvenating bathing experience, or blended with carrier oils to create massage oils or skincare products.
Yuzu is commonly paired with Lavender, Geranium, Lemon, Grapefruit, Bergamot, Peppermint and Clary Sage to great effect.
It is important to note that yuzu essential oil is highly concentrated, so it should be diluted properly before topical use.
