EC Number: 284-521-0
Description and usage: Cold pressed from the peel of Tangerine fruits. It has a yellow orange color and the typical citrus scent – fresh, radiant, and tangy sweet. With only subtle differences, it smells a lot like the Mandarin, with some even considering them identical. In comparison to Sweet Orange, Tangerine can be seen as lighter with more candy-like tones. The health benefits of Tangerine Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties like anti-spasmodic, depurative, sedative, stomachic and tonic.
Blends well with: Basil, Bergamot, Cinnamon, Clary sage, Clove, Frankincense, Lavender, Lemon, Lime, Neroli, and Orange.
Interesting facts: The Tangerine tree is also very similar to the Mandarin. Its fruits are darker in color, they have no seeds and are harvested in different seasons. The Tangerine tree was originally native to China, but is now grown predominantly in the United States and Sicily in Italy. It was widely used in traditional Chinese culture and herbal medicine.
