Description: Yuzu oil is an essential oil derived from the yuzu fruit, which is a citrus fruit originating from East Asia, primarily Japan and Korea. Yuzu oil is known for its distinct and aromatic fragrance, resembling a combination of grapefruit, lemon, and mandarin oranges. Yuzu oil is primarily extracted from the peel or zest of the fruit through a cold-pressing process.
