Yuzu and baths

 

I was thinking about all these fun cultural facts that I find out about Japan from the mere fact that I kind of obsess over Japan like how a Japanese person might obsess over France.

So Yuzu is this citrus fruit that, aside from cooking purposes, Japanese put into their baths during Toji (aka winter solstice) to guard against colds, rejuvenation, and simply for relaxation because it smells so nice.

It makes me wish that I had a bathtub that I could soak in.  :3  The smell must be so invigorating!
