Background Information on Tangerine Essential Oil
Tangerines and the essential oils from it, originally are from China. They were imported into Europe in the early 1800’s and the rest of the world, a short time later. The essential oil from the tangerine holds a significance in the Chinese culture and herbal apothecary as does the mandarin.
Extracted through cold-pressing the peel, tangerine essential oil is a source of antioxidants. It contains high concentrations of d-limonene which provide benefits for the skin, the immune system as well as emotional well being.
