Mandarin Essential Oil


What is Mandarin? Often associated with Asian cooking, Mandarin is also used in perfumery.

It's delicate, sweet and tangy with floral undertones. It comes from a prolific fruit-producing tree, which happens to like hot and humid climates.

The botanical name for Mandarin Essential Oil is Citrus, reticulata, while the latin name is Citrus mandurensis.

Sweet and tangy, pure Mandarin essential oil has many uses. Two drops of this beauty in an aromatic bath soothes your digestive system, helping to regulate and balance the fluids in your body.

It can also be used in soothing an upset tummy in children. 4 drops of mandarin, 2 drops of grapefruit, 2 drops of lavender, 2 drops of roman chamomile in a carrier oil (jojoba, marula or sweet almond). Rub into stomach.

Also known to help in removing stretch marks, 6 drops of mandarin, 10 drops of helichrysum, 3 drops lavender, 3 drops neroli. Add these beauties to 15 ml of rosehip seed and tamanu oil.
