Mandarin is prized for its potent smell and is a common ingredient in perfumes and cosmetics. Aromatically, mandarin can help promote restful sleep and soothe anxious nerves. Diffuse or apply topically in 2-5% dilution.
The name is said to come from the fact that it was a traditional gift to the mandarins of China. It is native to southern China and the Far East and was brought to Europe in 1805 and to the USA forty years later.
