Yuzu Essential Oil is hydrodistilled from the rind and has relaxing properties.
Yuzu contains D-limonene which is contained in the peels of citrus fruits such as grapefruit, tangerine and lemon. Like other citrus oils, Yuzu contains limonene.
Yuzu improves clarity yet is calming to the body. In Japan, it has been used to enhance relaxation in the bath and to promote sleep. Use to unwind before bed time, or to increase focus.
This oil is contained in Young Living’s NingXia Red to enhance flavor and increase the antioxidant effects and the amount of Vitamin C. Yuzu contains more Vitamin C than the other citrus fruits.

What is Nan's Mental (Mindset), Emotional and Spiritual Interpretation of this Oil?
Yuzu gently centers and softens the body and helps us to be present. It connects and opens the right brain vs. lemon which has more of an effect on the left brain. This allows us to be more in touch with our creative side.
It releases the emotions of unimportant, insignificant and
worthless; and helps us to respect and value ourselves on a deeper emotional
level. This will help those with
addictions and those that have been around people that are verbally derogatory. It will help people
find their own identity.
I get this will also help animals who have come from emotionally unhealthy homes and have experienced emotional upheaval. It will help them understand their own place in the human world by helping them see their own self worth which will create their own sense of identity.

Note About Animal Use: Certain oils that are not therapeutic grade can be very toxic to cats. Citrus and pine products and oils in particular. Please consult your vet if you are not sure about applying any essential oil to your pet.

At this time, I do not have information on the FDA designation for Yuzu. I would assume that it is Generally Regarded as Safe (GRAS) since it is in many food products; and is similar to orange and lemon.
I only recommend using Young Living Oils on animals at this time.
