Yuzu Essential Oil

Yuzu

Yuzu

Yuzu Essential Oil possesses a delightful citrus aroma that resembles a combination of mandarin and grapefruit. Children are very likely to enjoy the aroma.

Yuzu Essential Oil is well known for application within personal fragrancing. However, limited reliable information exists on the use of Yuzu Oil in other specific applications.

The pleasant aroma of Yuzu Oil makes it a good candidate for uplifting diffuser blends intended to help with anxiety, depression and nervousness.

Be selective of who you purchase Yuzu Essential Oil from as some producers have been found to pass a citrus oil blend off as Yuzu Oil.

Yuzu Oil is very likely not phototoxic. See Safety Information section for more information.

Safety Information:Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young recommend careful storage and avoiding use of oxidized Yuzu Oil to prevent skin sensitization. Although Yuzu Essential Oil has not undergone reliable phototoxicity testing, Tisserand and Young strongly conclude that Yuzu Oil is very likely not phototoxic due to its insignificant content of bergapten. [Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young, Essential Oil Safety (Second Edition. United Kingdom: Churchill Livingstone Elsevier, 2014), 87,343.]

Important Note: The essential oil information provided within the Essential Oil Properties & Profiles area is intended for educational purposes only. This data is not considered complete and is not guaranteed to be accurate. Profiles for several absolutes are included within the directory, and are denoted as such.

General Safety Information: Do not take any oils internally and do not apply undiluted essential oils, absolutes, CO2s or other concentrated essences onto the skin without advanced essential oil knowledge or consultation from a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using oils with children and give children only the gentlest oils at extremely low doses. It is safest to consult a qualified aromatherapy practitioner before using oils with children. A skin patch test should be conducted prior to using an oil that you've never used before. Instructions on conducting a skin patch test and more safety information can be found by visiting the Safety Information page. For in-depth information on oil safety issues, read Essential Oil Safety by Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young.
