The Happiness Maker

The yuzu fruit is one of the most popular lemon fruits in Japan. Whether in the kitchen, as a refreshing drink or as an essential oil for Japanese bathing rituals to strengthen the immune system - the yuzu lemon offers versatile applications. Yuzu is a cross between the citrus fruit Ichang Papeda and mandarin and is native to Japan and Korea. You have to wait up to 18 years before the first fruits of a yuzu lemon tree can be harvested. The exotic fruit has a refreshing, very pleasant citrus scent and has a significantly higher vitamin C content than "normal" lemons. The yuzu oil extracted from the peel of the yuzu fruit is a true fragrant rarity and is only available in small quantities. The essential oil is extracted by cold pressing to ensure that all the valuable ingredients of the lemon fruit are preserved. Only two litres of yuzu oil require 300 kg of grated yuzu fruit peel. With its tangy-fresh to delicate-floral fragrance, the oil is considered a natural "happiness maker" in Japan.

Yuzu-Frucht: Wirkung und Eigenschaften als naturreines Öl

The refreshing citrus scent of yuzu oil has a mood-lifting effect and can help to reduce stress and anxiety. As an essential oil, yuzu has a calming, relaxing and antispasmodic effect. With an exceptionally high vitamin C content, as well as its good enrichment of vitamins A and E, yuzu strengthens the immune system and is therefore preferred for Japanese bathing rituals in winter.

Good to know: Yuzu lemon oil naturally contains a high concentration of antioxidants that can help protect the body from free radicals. These free radicals can be caused by pollution, sunlight and other factors and can lead to premature ageing of the skin. Yuzu oil not only has an invigorating and activating effect on the skin, as a detox oil it stimulates fat burning and strengthens the connective tissue. Since yuzu has anti-inflammatory properties, it is also particularly suitable for acne skin.

How to use the essential oil of the yuzu fruit

Use in aromatherapy

The essential oil yuzu in aromatherapy

The essential oil extracted from the yuzu fruit can be used in various ways. A few drops of yuzu oil in a diffuser or fragrance lamp spreads the refreshing citrus scent in the room: this is the best way for the "happiness maker" to unfold its mood-lifting effect. The vibrant aroma of our strongly aromatic yuzu essential oil is surprisingly robust and offers a lasting citrus note. Two components have recently been identified as key to this citrus peel's unique olfactory profile: Yuzounone and Yuzuol enhance the balsamic, sweet and floral qualities that distinguish yuzu aroma from other citrus fruits. Incidentally, the essential oil blends well with benzoin siam, frankincense, vanilla and other citrus fruits.

Shelf life & storage

Storage of the Yuzu Essential Oil

Like all essential oils, yuzu oil should be stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.


Please do not use essential oils pure at any time, but mix only a few drops of them with a fatty oil so that the recommended number of drops is not exceeded. Other ways to use an essential oil are, of course, always fragrance lamps, nebulisers, diffusers or simply a handkerchief as a carrier material for room scenting, so that the oil can be absorbed through your respiratory tract. Essential oils are the highly effective essence of a plant, so always be aware of their potency. Essential oils are not suitable for children under the age of 3.
