DIY Yuzu Bath

Yuzu has long been a traditional fruit for infusing hot water in outdoor onsen as well as in Japanese households. With a high concentration of vitamin C, it’s especially good for fighting off the common cold. To draw yourself a yuzu bath, simply toss a handful of slices in hot water and soak. The fresh fragrance will fill your bathroom, providing a little aromatherapy too. For an extra dose of pampering and relaxation, add 50g of Epsom salt to soothe aching muscles.
