Mandarin essential oil is a natural scraping agent for the skin. It smoothly and meticulously scrapes all the impurities from the surface of the skin. The oil has many natural properties that distinguishes it from the rest of natural oils.
Mandarin is a group name for a class of oranges with thin, loose peel, which have been dubbed “kid-glove” oranges. These are treated as members of a distinct species, Citrus reticulata Blanco.
The name “tangerine” could be applied as an alternate name to the whole group, but, in the trade, is usually confined to the types with red-orange skin. In the Philippines all mandarin oranges are called naranjita. Spanish-speaking people in the American tropics call them mandarina.
The mandarin tree may be much smaller than that of the sweet orange or equal in size, depending on variety. With great age, some may reach a height of 25 ft (7.5 m) with a greater spread. The tree is usually thorny, with slender twigs, broad-or slender-lanceolate leaves having minute, rounded teeth, and narrowly-winged petioles. The flowers are borne singly or a few together in the leaf axils. The fruit is oblate, the peel bright-orange or red-orange when ripe, loose, separating easily from the segments. Seeds are small, pointed at one end, green inside.
Sweetly tangy, pure mandarin oil reduces the negative effects of daily stress, promotes deep, restful sleep, and supports feelings of contentment and well being. In recognition of this, it has been used in European hospitals as a calmative agent. Its toning effect extends to the skin, where true mandarin essential oil aids in –
