Mandarin Essential Oils

Mandarin essential oil can be expressed from the peel of the ripe (Red Mandarin) or unripe (Green Mandarin) fruits. Red Mandarin has a soft, smooth and sweet orange aroma, while the Green is tarter, dryer and more complex.

The main action of Mandarin is on the digestive system, where it stimulates and tonifies; for this purpose blend with a carrier oil, such as sweet almond, and rub gently into the abdomen. Its detoxifying properties make a suitable for anti-cellulite routines, and mandarin is also excellent for helping to prevent stretchmarks during pregnancy (blend with lavender and neroli – 2% essential oils in a suitable carrier oil).

It is also an excellent toner for oily, combination, or blemished skin, and can lift anyone’s spirits in anxious moments. It helps promote a restful sleep – the classic children’s oil. Mandarin also blends well with geranium, clary sage, other citrus oils, and some spicy essential oils.
