Marvelous Mandarin Essential Oil is a sparkling-citrus Italian dream steeped in the fragrant florals of tangerine. Mandarin Essential Oil is cold pressed from the succulent outer rind of mandarins, sweet citrus fruit first brought to Europe in the early nineteenth century. This oil is yellow-orange in color and offers a more complex scent with hints of sunny florals.

Our magnificent Mandarin Essential Oil is a sweet Italian treat with deep roots in the Far East. Originally cultivated in Southern China beginning in the 12th century, these succulent fruits offer an oil that bursts from the rind with a pungent citrus essence.
Unlike the energizing action of most citrus oils, Mandarin Essential Oil has a calming effect that is perfection pre-bedtime. In France, it is a popular slumber time breathing balm for restless children. Mandarin essence can also be used to ease worry and gladden the heart.
This cheery oil can improve the appearance of many skin conditions, including the scars, fine lines, and sagging skin. A wonderful tonic, Mandarin Essential Oil is particularly useful for cleansing skin with acne and balancing an overabundance of oil on the skin.
"The gentleness and sweetness of spirit is gathered in the arms of this oil... Mandarin can be inhaled whenever we feel the urge to make the connection with other realms and hear the music of the spheres."
~ Valerie Ann Worwood, Aromatherapy for the Soul
"Mandarin oil is a yellowy orange mobile liquid with a blue-violet hint, having an intensely sweet, almost floral citrus scent. It blends well with other citrus oils, especially neroli, and spice oils such as nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove."
~Julia Lawless, The Encyclopedia of Essential Oils
"I brought mandarins and roasted chestnuts to the room in paper packets and peeled and ate the small tangerine-like oranges and threw their skins and spat their seeds in the fire when I ate them and the roasted chestnuts when I was hungry."
~ Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast
