Yuzu Essential Oil
Our organically crafted Yuzu Essential Oil is cold pressed from the yellow and green rinds of the freshly harvested Citrus junos fruits cultivated in the sunny Japanese orchards. The bright, strong, slightly floral, citrus scent of our strongly aromatic Yuzu Essential Oil is amazingly robust and provides a lasting citrus top note.
In Japan, bathing with Yuzu during winter solstice is an ancient family custom dating back centuries. Unlike other citrus peel oils, potentially phototoxic furanocoumarins are not present in the Yuzu Essential Oil - making it a worthwhile addition to products intended to help revitalize skin and combat signs of aging. A review of the chemical constituents of Citrus junos shows remarkable diversity from other citrus fruit oils - the presence of constituents that contribute significantly to its unique aromatic aspects: Yuzunone and Yuzuol that increase the balsamic, sweet, and delicate floral overtones.

Yuzu Essential Oil is also a strong choice when looking to help boost the immune system, reduce pain and inflammation, or help soothe unwelcome muscle spasms. Yuzu Essential Oil supports healthy lung function and has a powerful anti-bacterial action which makes it effective against colds and flu, which would account for its success and popularity in Japanese folk medicine. It is frequently used in facial and body cleansers for its purifying properties and uplifting scent. Yuzu Essential Oil can also help promote a youthful appearance, diminishing the appearance of fine lines, patchy pigmentation and loss of elasticity.
Being refreshing and uplifting on the body while calming on the mind, the essential oil is often used in aromatherapy. The pleasant aroma of Yuzu Oil makes it a good candidate for uplifting diffuser blends intended to help with anxiety, depression and nervousness.
