Yuzu is well known for its characteristically strong aroma, and the oil from its skin is marketed as a fragrance. Started in early 18th century, soaking in yuzu bath is practised by the Japanese on the winter solstice day. Whole yuzu fruits are floated in the hot water of the bath, sometimes enclosed in a cloth bag in releasing their aroma, or, the yuzu fruit may also be cut in half, allowing the citrus juice to mingle with the bathwater.
The Japanese strong believe that yuzu bath (also known commonly as yuzuyu, or yuzuburo) can help to ward off winter colds and the common flu. Benefits of a yuzu bath includes:
- skin become smoother, more radiant and moisturised following the yuzu bath experience.
- the citrus acids and vitamin C from the yuzu fruits help to heal chapped skin
- the oil from yuzu helps to stimulates the circulatory and digestive systems
