    Safety Information:

    Mandarin Essential Oil is very mild, non-irritating, non-sensitizing and non-toxic, and most people love its fragrance, therefore it's a great choice for use with children, those in fragile health and the elderly, but with these populations, always dilute by half, what you would use for adults, i.e., 4-8 drops in a bath for adults is 2-4 drops for children, elderly or frail individuals.

    Mandarin is mildly phototoxic, meaning it can cause a mild increase in the effects of the sun's rays on the skin, as compared to other citrus essential oils, but do take precautions in direct sunlight and use sunscreen following application of Mandarin essential oil to the skin.

  • Red Mandarin, 'China's Gift'. A deliciously sweet, citrus scent with a depth to its undertones and a hint of bitter; peacefully uplifting.

    100% PURE RED MANDARIN ESSENTIAL OIL, The name Mandarin, comes from the fruit that was a traditional gift to the Mandarins of China. There are two varieties of this oil; Mandarin, mainly from Europe, and Tangerine, mainly from the United States. Mandarin and Tangerine are considered the same botanical species although there is a slight difference in fragrance between the two. Mandarin tends to be preferred for therapeutic aromatherapy

    Red Mandarin (Citrus reticulata) is one of the safest essential oils and is particularly recommended for children and for use during pregnancy. Mandarin is an uplifting, cheering, soothing oil. It helps to calm the nervous system, and its relaxing properties make it effective for soothing restlessness, and hyperactivity in children. It has a slightly hypnotic effect and is therefore useful for calming an over-active mind and promoting a restful night's sleep. It is also reputed to be useful for alleviating nausea, having a similar action to Ginger and Peppermint essential oils.

    Red Mandarine Essential Oil is a sweet, happy oil. Similar to Tangerine Essential oil, it uplifts our spirits, soothes the mind for a peaceful sleep, calms our digestion and helps us deal with stress. It 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 Mandarine 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 Mandarine 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 Mandarine 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. Following is a list of conditions Red Mandarine Essential Oil addresses by category: Sleep aid for children and adults, Diffuse in room, Aromatic Bath.
