There are many ways mandarin oil can uplift your spirits. Its tart, fresh aroma makes the oil useful for combating depression and sadness. Its properties enable it to ease distress, and it can even act as a gentle sedative.

What can pure essential oil of Mandarin do for me? There are many symptoms and problems mandarin pure essential oil can help with. The list can be somewhat overwhelming, but we will cover some of the most common ailments the oil is used for. For starters, it can be used as a natural cleaner around the house. Just add a few drops of oil to some water, dampen a rag, and clean away.

The natural antiseptic properties of the mandarin oil will help clean and disinfect the items or rooms you are cleaning. This is especially good for the children’s room, where you would not want the processed chemicals is some of the cleaners in the air, or on the surfaces the children are touching.

Second, it helps to prevent stretch marks. Mix mandarin oil with a carrier oil, such as –

And then, rub on your stomach every day while pregnant. The mixture should be ½ cup of carrier oil, and 50 drops of mandarin pure essential oil. This oil is safe for pregnant women, so no need to worry. It only prevents, not removes, just to clarify.

Clearing Confusion About Mandarin Oil

Going by the awareness of people regarding essential oils, or I should narrow it down a bit, regarding Mandarin essential oil, it is quite surprising to note that most of them confuse mandarin essential oil with many other essential oils, which are similar to it in many ways.

Often confused with Satsuma and Tangerine, the Mandarin orange is a variety in the same Rutacae family. The tree resembles other varieties of oranges with small glossy leaves and fragrant white blossoms, while the fruit is oblate rather than spherical and typically less sweet than that of other varieties.

Mandarin is a small evergreen tree up to 20 ft. high with ovate leaves and small fragrant white flowers. The fruit, like a small orange, in color and shape. The name is said to come from the fact that it was a traditional gift to the mandarins of China. Native to southern China and the Far East, brought to Europe in 1805 and to the USA forty years later, here it was renamed the tangerine.

The mandarin is produced mainly in –

  • Italy
  • Spain
  • Algeria
  • Cyprus
  • Greece
  • The Middle East
  • Brazil

Whereas the tangerine in Texas, Florida, California and Guinea.

Mandarin essential oil, Citrus reticulata, is considered to be a safe children’s remedy for indigestion, hiccoughs, etc. and also used by elderly to help strengthen the digestive function and liver. Mandarin oil is used in soaps, cosmetics and perfumes especially colognes. It is employed as a flavoring agent especially in confectionery, soft drinks and liqueurs.

Mandarin essential oil has an intensely sweet, fruity, floral-like, citrus aroma. The color of the oil is brownish to dark yellow. It is cold expressed from the small fruit of an evergreen tree. Grown and cold-expressed in Australia, this Mandarin Oil has a juicer, sweeter scent than Mandarin grown in other locations.

Citrus Oils in their pure state, may appear cloudy or contain small particles of wax. This occurs naturally in the oil and becomes most apparent when stored in cold areas. It is recommended, however, that these oils be stored in a cold place to ensure longevity and quality. If the clarity is a concern, you may wish to filter until clear, however once cooled again the cloudy appearance may return. The clarity may improve through storing the oil at room temperature, but this will reduce the shelf life and is not recommended.
