Hinoki & Yuzu Japan Oils

Japan has been blessed with two beautiful oils.

Yuzu (Limited) & Hinoki.

Yuzu is a limited oil in Japan that was released in June 2018 at doTERRA Japan Convention. We would love if it would be a permanent addition to doTERRA’s Japan’s collection but we are not sure how long it will be available.

Yuzu is a sour Japanese fruit with an aroma and flavor that is distinct from any other citrus fruits. This citrus fruit is bright yellow, round and slightly smaller than an orange. It has rough skin and big seeds. The taste is between that of a grapefruit and a mandarin orange; tart but very aromatic.

In Japan, Yuzu is almost never eaten on its own. It is used as a flavoring in many foods such as desserts, fruit liqueurs, tea, throat drops, also in cosmetics, bath salts, and a very popular way to bring in the Winter Solstice in Japan is to take a Yuzu bath.

How To Use

Hinoki is a very calming and beautiful oil. I use Hinoki almost every day on my legs for circulation, and in my bath to help me relax before bed. It is great in a warm foot bath. doTERRA uses thinning timber and scrap wood from the forestry industry to make this oil.

  • Diffuse before going to bed, apply to the feet, back, chest for a good night rest.
  • Put 2 to 3 drops into the bath, and relax your mind and body.
  • Use it for polishing the floor and wood.
