Yuzu Essential Oil

YuzuThe fresh, citrus scent of Yuzu is refreshing, uplifting, and unique.  This small, greenish yellow fruit originates in Asia, and is a popular food item in Japan, Korea, and China. With a similar aroma to Grapefruit, Yuzu Essential Oil makes an exotic, but versatile addition to Essential Oil blends and natural skin care formulations.

Like Grapefruit or other citrus Essential Oils, Yuzu Essential Oil can cause photo-sensitivity.  Make sure to keep this in mind while creating and using recipes that include Yuzu.  This fragrant Essential Oil blends wonderfully with Rose, Geranium, Ylang Ylang, and Vanilla.  Citrus Essential Oils, such as Yuzu, are also great for creating energizing blends.  Try combining Yuzu Essential Oil with Cypress, Patchouli, Basil, and Mandarin.  This aromatic blend can help to add a spring to your step when you are feeling low or listless.

Yuzu Essential Oil is also becoming a popular ingredient for use in perfumery.  Yuzu makes an ideal top note and adds a touch of tart and sweetness to both floral and oriental blends.
