Description

Mandarin Essential Oil (Citrus reticulata) expressed peel oil

Our Mandarin Essential Oil has an intensely sweet citrus scent and a fresh calming effect. Expressed from the peel of the fleshy orange fruit of a small spreading evergreen tree.

Dating back thousands of years to traditional Chinese medicine, mandarin is known to be the sweetest and the most calming of citrus essential oils.  Mandarin is very mild and known for its many healing properties. For instance, useful in helping to reduce acne, brighten the skin, alleviate insomnia, reduce oily skin, diminish the appearance of scars and age spots.

Mandarin has a yellow-orange to orange-brown colour and a thin consistency.

Mandarin is one of the more gentle and relaxing of the Citrus oils. Regarded as a safe children’s remedy in France and is one of our favourite children’s oils.

Considered an uplifting oil, Mandarin is one of the best for boosting your mood when feeling down. Its relaxing but uplifting nature makes Mandarin ideal to use for inhalation or in a diffuser to raise the mood, such as for anxiety or depression, or other stress-related conditions. It is also useful for oily or congested skin.

(Caution – Mandarin may cause photosensitisation – we recommend avoiding sun exposure for 12 hours after topical use of this essential oil – see below for more information)

General Safety Information

As Mandarin is an expressed citrus oil it may cause phototoxicity. Phototoxity is where certain chemicals called furanocoumarins induce a skin reaction in the presence of strong sunlight. This results in the skin cells absorbing more UV photons than normal, which results in a more rapid tanning or burning skin reaction. Furanocoumarins are commonly found in citrus essential oils, such as Mandarin.

The risk of phototoxicity will remain for 12 hours. So if you topically apply one of these essential oils to your skin, avoid sun and UV exposure for at least 12 hours. If you’re diffusing one of these oils in your home, no need to worry. This applies to topical application to the skin, not inhalation
