Red Mandarin Essential Oil is a refreshing, uplifting oil that brings sunshine and peace to even the most trying day. Its aroma is bittersweet and citrusy with a bottom note that leaves you in a refreshing pool of sweetness. Red Mandarin is an excellent and delicious-smelling non-toxic choice for a peaceful nights sleep, soothing digestion and relaxing an anxious mind. It’s upbeat, sweet and very soothing to children. As a purifying oil, Red Mandarin helps to detoxify the body by cleansing waste products and toxins from the body and supports the natural cleansing functions of the kidneys and liver. Due to this detoxification effect, it also increases tissue blood flow and lymph drainage and may also help as a general blood purifier.
Red Mandarin Oil has therapeutically similar benefits to Tangerine and Orange Oil, but its scent is considered tarter and more complex than Tangerine. Its calming properties are also more pronounced.

The bright orange Mandarine fruit are believed to be named after Mandarin Chinese. Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine practitioners have used Mandarin peels for centuries to aid digestion and are symbols of good luck and fortune, given traditionally as gifts for Chinese New Year. Mandarine oil is a popular flavoring agent for candies, drinks and liquors.
About the Plant
Manderines grow on an evergreen tree, which grows up to 18 ft high. The tree has glossy leaves producing fragrant white flowers and bearing green fruits turning to orange when ripe. Although the Tangerine and Mandarine are very similar, the Tangerine fruit is larger than the Mandarine, and rounder, with a more yellow-hued skin.
Where it Grows
Native to southern China and the Far East. Brought to Europe in 1805 and to America forty years later.
