Mandarin essential oil is extracted from the peel of mandarin oranges
(Citrus reticulata). Native to China, but now Italy grows them and
produces Mandarin essential oil.
It is adaptable and can be used to treat a wide range of physical and
emotional conditions. A few drops added to a carrier can be used in
massage to treat cellulite, stretch marks and fluid retention effectively.
Mandarin oil has a mild antispasmodic effect which makes it useful for
relaxing muscle spasms, and when massaged on the abdomen helps to relieve stomach problems.
Mandarin essential oil has a reputation of being safe for use with
children, but caution is still needed. May be irritant on young skin if used in too high a concentration for long periods. Just one drop to every
5mls of carrier on young children for massage use.
Benefits of Mandarin Essential Oil
Most of the oils offered will never change. Oils may change on occasion though, or vary slightly between batches.
When applying any fragrance please consider that there are several factors which can affect the natural smell of your skin and, in turn, the way a scent smells on you. For instance, your mood, stress level, age, body chemistry, diet, and current medications may all alter the scents you wear. Similarly, factors such as dry or oily skin can even affect the amount of time a fragrance will last after being applied.
