Yuzu - Organic Essential Oil - 10ml
The crown of all the Japanese sour citrus fruits, yuzu has a very unique aroma, with centuries old culinary and medicinal uses in Japan, China and Korea, now supported by medical research:
• Balance, refresh & improve mental clarity | soothes nerves, decreases heart rate and tension-anxiety, particularly for unsettled moods during menses or menopause; head-clearing effects may also explain its traditional use in Shinto religious ceremonies. • Bronchial asthma | contains compounds that inhibit the production of certain chemicals in the body which contribute to this bronchial asthma (based on a 2010 scientific study). • Muscle massage | helps loosen tight muscles in massage (combine with a carrier oil). • Diverse complimentary treatments | like other citrus oils its anti-bacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties are effective as complimentary treatments.
Specific claims are always evidenced by clinical studies (or traditional use in aromatherapy), but not guaranteed to be successful for everyone. Contact us for more information.
Cotton ball: put a few drops in cotton balls and breathe in or (better still) place cotton in a cylindrical container first and breathe in from there. Keep the container at 10cm away and inhale 10 deep breaths. Repeat steps for desired effects 2-3 times a day.
Diffuser/Vaporisation: add recommended number of drops to nebulizer or cold steam diffuser.
Bath: Add few drops to bath. To help oils disperse easily, mix first with little oil or our liquid soap before pouring into bath.
Steam/Compress for cold & flu: Add 10 drops to 100ml very warm water. Soak cloth in the scented water & wrap on desired area (ideal for bruises, wounds, muscular aches & pains and skin problems). For facial steam add 5 drops to bowl of hot water, cover head with a towel to make a tent, then steam face for a few mins.
Massages: Use 1-2% essential oil to carrier (i.e. 1-2 drops per 10ml of carrier); for children under 12 halve this amount.
Seek professional advice to use internally or undiluted on skin • Keep away from eyes & children.
