From reducing stress to boosting your mood, the power of aromatherapy can be easily underestimated. Tangerine Essential Oil is a great way to reap the benefits of this ancient healing practice. A product of the planet’s sub-tropical regions, Tangerines were originally cultivated in Japan. Exported for 2,000 years via the Silk Road through China, Central Asia, India, Turkey and Italy, Tangerines departed from Tangier, Morocco to Europe and the Americas.

Tangerine is a hybrid of Mandarin (Citrus reticulata) and Bitter Orange (Citrus aurantium). With its delightfully sweet aroma and an array of possible uses, Tangerine Oil is quickly becoming a must-have addition to many households across the world due to its versatility in everyday activities. In this article, Amrita’s experts will explore why Tangerine Essential Oil should be an integral part in your home and how it can help you on your mission for the purest well-being.

The Healing Power of Tangerine: Why should it be in your daily routine?

Recent research shows that the olfactory enrichment provided by essential oils can create neurogenesis, enlarging the parts of our brains that involve memory and cognition.* This is something that those in the aromatherapy world know well: Direct stimulation of the olfactory bulb, connecting directly to your brain’s limbic system, can enhance your life!* Your limbic system is responsible for processing emotions, the formation and storage of memories, learning and arousal.*

Other sensory systems connect with your brain via the thalamus, which relays signals to the cerebral cortex. Essential oils, however, access the brain directly through that all-important bulb. This superhighway of limbic stimulation has now been shown to reduce (and possibly prevent) deterioration of the brain’s learning and memory capabilities.*
