Since we've lost our Yuzu tree in the 2020 fires, we've been on our last drops on this one. However, our friends from Mountain Yuzu have generously allowed us to buy up their end-of-Harvest leftovers this year, and we've also planted a new tree which is already producing fruit - well, it's got 2 this year, so way to go;-). But essentially, we're back in the Yuzu game for now!
Yuzu softens even the driest of skin, strengthens collagen integrity, restores elasticity and, and, according to Ayurvedic medicine, soothes the 'vata doshas' characterised by the elements of space, wind and air, which is why Yuzu has traditionally been used for dry skin conditions.
Energetically, Yuzu lifts anxiety, releases tension and instills a sense of calm, clarity and warm refreshment – which I know seems like an oxymoron, but if you've ever had a Japanse Yuzu tea ('Yuzu Cha'), or even just sipped a hot lemon water in the chill of winter, you know exactly what I mean...
• Protecting from + repairing oxidative damage • Strengthening and maintaining collagen integrity • Fortifying + restoring elasticity • Providing deep hydration
