Observations and Anecdotal Information
Yuzu has a history of medicinal and culinary use in China and Japan that reaches back over 1200 years.
Japanese hot springs “yuzu baths” are still taken in the winter, and especially on winter solstice, to insure health, wealth, and prosperity in the coming year. The steaming hot water opens the peel and enables the healing essential oils to be released into the air and water, making a beautiful aromatic bath experience.
Yuzu essential oil has a smoothing effect on the skin, increases circulation, and boosts the immune system to ward off colds and flu.
The unique aroma is recognizably different from other citrus oils. It diffuses to abolish molds and bacteria in the air, and to add a smooth beautiful note to any room. Added to blends, yuzu harmonizes and refines the aroma.
Yuzu is used internally in Korea as a remedy for the common cold. It is used topically to treat rashes and itching, and to smooth the complexion. It makes a nice addition into skin cremes and spray toners.
