Similar in uses to Tangerine, but much more complex and adult in aroma, Mandarine Oil is gentle enough to use with young children and during pregnancy. This is a truly unusual specimen, multi-layered and complex. Much closer to a Bergamot type oil than a Tangerine, a must have for every citrus lover!
It is a great antiseptic to use as a room spray and a toner for oily or acnied skin. But where Mandarine really shines is in its emotional uses. It is considered both a calming influence and gently uplifting. Wonderful for use with children, a true “citrus smile bringer.”
Mandarine is a wonderful treatment for sleep disturbances and insomnia. A recent study in nursing homes found Mandarine essential oil even more effective than lavender in dealing with insomnia.
Another use, not widely published: our nurses tell us that Red Mandarine is a wonderful anti-nausea agent.
Some authorities say it is helpful in doing inner child work.
One of the “sun-safe” citrus oils.
SHELF LIFE: Approximately 1 to 2 years after you open the bottle. Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
