Close to two decades ago I fell in love with Clementine Essential Oil. As complex and multi-layered as a good Red Mandarine, but sweeter. The sweetness of Sweet Orange Rind or Tangerine, but more subtle. Almost a touch of floral to it. I love this deep reddish orange oil, but…the Spanish producer of that first, organic Clementine Oil stopped producing it. And I won’t use, or offer, non-organic cold-pressed citrus oils. So we have been without this delight for years. It is a species of mandarine, for those who have never experienced it, gentle and safe enough to use with toddlers. Relaxing, not energizing, it fills the room with calm, quiet, and peace.
Finally a friend who has produced some rare Italian oils for us sent us his newest product sheet, and there it was! We are so glad to be able to enjoy it ourselves, and offer it to you.
Safety: the issue with most citrus oils is photosensitization, so of course I reached for my copy of Essential Oil Safety to research it. “Clementine Oil has not been tested for phototoxicity. Limited availability”
It is a relative of Mandarine, which is not a photosensitizer, but we do not know for certain.
Shelf Life: 1 to 2 years after opening. Refrigerate to extend life.
