Yuzu is a citrus fruit native to East Asia and a hybrid of sour mandarin and other citrus types. The aroma of this essential oil is tangy, with a sweet-warmth typical of citrus. Diffused or when mixed with other oils it is purifying, inspiring and some feel, personally empowering.
The added benefit of not being photo toxic allows formulators to add it to leave on products!
As a rule of thumb, essential oils should be diluted in a carrier oil at no greater concentration than 3-5%. That means if you have one teaspoon (5cc) of carrier, you would add 3 drops of pure essential oil.
Not recommended in cp or hp soap as it does not hold up.
