About: Yuzu is a citrus fruit that is cultivated in Japan and arrived there by way of Tibet or Central China, where it grows in the wild.
Yuzu’s scent is crisp, bright, and a bit more sophisticated and elegant than the usual citrus fruits. From an aromatherapy perspective, yuzu is uplifting and refreshing. Yuzu relieves stress and has sedative-like properties. Yuzu also has a detoxifying/cleansing effect on the body.
Readily available throughout Japan, yuzu is often used in winter bathing. On the day of the winter solstice, it is good luck to place whole yuzu fruits in the bath for a relaxing, aromatic soak.
