Mandarin Essential Oil
Enjoy a gentle yet energizing burst of sunny citrus with our pure Red Mandarin Essential Oil. Also known as Tangor or Temple Orange, Red Mandarin Essential Oil presents a medium-strength aroma of sweet citrus with a vibrant, floral top note.
Red Mandarin Essential Oil is a potent source of limonene, an antioxidant found in the peels of citrus fruit. Studies suggest that limonene may help increase metabolism, support brain health, and reduce cellular damage caused by chronic inflammation and oxidative stress. Red Mandarin Essential Oil is also antimicrobial and has antibacterial properties.
This essential oil pairs harmoniously with other citrus oils as well as jasmine, lavender, and sandalwood. Red Mandarin diffuser blends can fill your home or workspace with an airy feeling of calm that also uplifts any mood. Like all citrus oils, Red Mandarin Essential Oil helps with depression and promotes positivity.
Red Mandarin Essential Oil can also be used in homemade beauty products to control oily skin, treat breakouts, reduce redness, and promote a glowing complexion. Try it for DIY cleaning products, first-aid treatment for minor cuts, and use in morning meditation practices.
