Tangerine Essential Oil is ready to bring sunshine and peace to even the most trying day. Its aroma is sweet and citrusy with a bottom note that leaves you in a refreshing pool of sweetness. Tangerine Oil is an excellent, delicious-smelling non-toxic choice to soothe digestion, purify the body and home and relax anxious thought patterns. It is also a great oil for children, due to its soft, sweet and calming scent. As a purifying oil, Tangerine 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.
Tangerine has therapeutically similar benefits to Red Mandarine and Orange Oil, but its scent is considered lighter, sweeter and softer than Red Mandarine.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the word "tangerine" was originally an adjective meaning "Of or pertaining to, or native of Tangier, a seaport in Morocco, on the Strait of Gibraltar". This is because Morocco was the first port to ship tangerines to Europe. Tangerine oil is a popular flavoring agent for candies, drinks and liquors.
About the Plant
Tangerines grow on an evergreen tree. The tree grows up to 18 feet high, displaying glossy leaves and fragrant white flowers that bear yellow-range fruits when ripe. Although the tangerine and mandarin are very similar, the tangerine fruit is larger than the mandarin, and rounder, with a more yellow-hued skin.
Where it Grows
Native to tropical Asia and China.
