Yuzu eases anxiety among citrus fruits

The interesting thing about Japanese essential oil is that it has a completely different scent depending on the place of production, distillation method, and harvest time. Yaetoco's yuzu essential oils are steam distilled and have a soft scent. It is very easy to use and makes you feel calm. People tend to think that the scent of citrus fruits will wake you up refreshed, but Yuzu essential oil is being researched as a scent that relieves anxiety and restores calmness.

A world-famous fragrance used by high-end brands

Used as a flavoring agent in high-brand restaurants and used in world-famous chocolates, the scent of yuzu is one of the most popular scents overseas. It is a scent that is liked by men and women of all ages, so it is one of the scents that can be safely added to blends such as aroma treatments and perfume making. In addition, we are involved in traditional Japanese culture such as eating habits, so we are sure that overseas people will be pleased when we give them as gifts.

Possibilities for utilization are expanding from the perspective of dementia prevention

The limbic system, which controls smell, and the hippocampus, which controls memory, are closely related. As a result, memories and scents are easily recorded in the brain, and the scent triggers a phenomenon in which memories are recalled. This is called the "Proust effect". This is because there is a scene in the novel, In Search of Lost Time, where the scent of madeleines and tea evokes memories of the past. In today's aging society, the number of dementia patients is also increasing. In order to prevent dementia, it turned out to be effective to train the sense of smell on a daily basis.

Citrus essential oil that can be used during the day because it is not phototoxic

Citrus essential oils from overseas manufacturers are generally extracted using the “pressing method” and contain aromatic ingredients that cause “phototoxicity”. "Phototoxicity" is an action that causes inflammation when exposed to sunlight while attached to the skin. For this reason, until now, citrus essential oils were always used at night or after aroma treatment without exposure to sunlight. However, most of the citrus essential oils of Japanese essential oils are collected by the "steam distillation method". As a result, it does not contain phototoxic ingredients and can be used 24 hours a day in aroma treatments and cosmetics. This was revolutionary, and it became possible to enjoy the scent of citrus in the refreshing hours of the morning.

Using up all the megumi harvested in the fields

Yaetoco's citrus essential oil is an essential oil extracted by steam distillation after squeezing Muchachaen's yuzu and then cutting the pericarp. Even in Ehime Prefecture, cultivation is thriving mainly in high-altitude mountain valleys, and Machachen also drove from Akehama to Kochi for about two hours in Shirokawa-cho, and in Hojo-enchi, a young producer group “Tenpojirushi”. Made in Uwa Enchi. It's easy to just throw away the juiced fruit, but we want to make the most of what's grown in the field. I was born with such thoughts in the background.

Many studies on yuzu essential oil are expected to be used in daily life and nursing care

There are many studies on yuzu essential oil in academic journals such as AROMARESEARCH, and it is attracting worldwide attention. In particular, it has been pointed out that the scent of yuzu may be useful in daily life, such as research on sleep and the deep relationship with Japanese food culture.

In addition, as the aging society progresses, nursing care cannot be done on an individual basis anymore. The relationship between dementia and the sense of smell is an area of ​​interest for many researchers. “Rosemary in the morning, lavender in the evening” was once broadcast on television, but that is just one example of the essential oils that seem to have the desired effect. In particular, due to the relationship between the hippocampus, which is responsible for memory, and olfactory neurotransmission, familiar scents are expected to prevent dementia.
