Tangerine Essential Oil
Product Name: Tangerine Essential Oil
Botanic Name: Citrus reticulate
Citrus reticulata blanco var tangerine
The Tangerine tree was originally native to China, but is
now grown predominantly in the United States and Sicily in Italy. The tree is
also very similar to the Mandarin.
Tangerine Essential Oil, like most of the citrus family,
can be depended upon for its refreshing and rejuvenating characteristics. Its
aroma clears the mind and can help to eliminate emotional confusion.
Aromatherapists also consider it to be very comforting, soothing and warming.
Users may also see Tangerine Essential Oil used in perfumes, soaps, and as an
antispasmodic, carminative, digestive, diuretic, sedative, stimulant (digestive
and lymphatic), and tonic agent.
Tangerine Essential Oil has the typical citrus scent –
fresh, radiant, and tangy sweet. With only subtle differences, it smells a lot
like the Mandarin, with some even considering them identical. In comparison to
Sweet Orange, Tangerine can be seen as lighter with more candy-like tones.
