Tangerines are lovely, small oranges, most often associated with mandarin oranges. They have a light, sweet taste and Tangerine oil (Citrus reticulata) takes that and concentrates it into a bright, sweet, aroma.

Here are a few recipes that utalize Tangerine oil.
*Please note: With any recipes involving bath or massage blends, always test on a small part of your skin first before using all over your body. Please be sure your skin can handle the blend before being covered in it.
Fill a 4-ounce mist spray bottle. Shake well before using every time. Spray the mist into the air. Keep mist as fine a spray as you can.
Add a small amount of purified water to a small porcelain, marble, ceramic or glass container. Heat with a candle. (Can also be used on an electric candle warmer.) Inhale the vapors deeply for best results.
As you prepare your bath, close the window and door to prevent oil vapors from escaping. Fill the bathtub with warm/hot water. To soften your skin and remove impurities, dissolve 1 cup of Epsom salt in the bath water. Then dilute the essential oils in the F.C.O. Pour blend into the water. Swirl the water to disperse the oil evenly. Enter the bath immediately, since essential oils evaporate quickly. Relax and enjoy the bath for at least 20 minutes.
Mix together and store in a dark, glass bottle. Use 2 teaspoons of blend in a warm bath.
Mix the above ingredients. Add enough pure water to make 8 ounces. Use this to splash on your face after cleansing and before moisturizing.
Combine all ingredients. Before using, wash skin thoroughly, then massage a portion of the formula. Use daily to rejuvenate your skin.
