Mandarin has a sweet, familiar aroma and is considered one of the gentler oils making it popular for use by pregnant women and on children, in low dilutions. It has a sweet, gentle, tangy aroma and similar actions to Sweet Orange and Bergamot. It is a great oil for irritability and tension with the ability to uplift and calm.
There are three types of mandarin oil, green, yellow and red. These colours do not refer to the colour of the oil, but the ripeness of the fruit when they are expressed. Absolute Aromas has selected yellow mandarin, for its wonderful zestiness which is distinct from the more common red oils. Sicily is the top source for these oils.
Method of Extraction:
Expressed from the peel of the fruit.
