Tangerines are small, seeded relatives of the mandarin orange, with an thin, easily peeled skin. Our tangerine essential oil is cold-pressed from the peel of citrus reticulata blanco fruits grown in Italy.
Tangerine essential oil is great for rejuvenating the spirit and clearing emotional stress. Topically, tangerine is great for clarifying oily to combination skin. Diffuse or apply in 2-5% dilution.
Tangerine Essential Oil has the typical citrus scent – fresh, radiant, and tangy sweet.
Tangerine Essential Oil is similar to other essential oils in the citrus family in that it can be phototoxic. Care should be taken not to expose the skin to sunlight after a treatment. Similarly, the oil should be diluted well before use on the skin. Avoid contact with eyes.
Tangerines were originally brought to Europe and then the United States via China.
