Tangerine oil is extracted from Citrus reticulata (also known as Citrus nobilis, C. madurensis, C. unshiu and C. deliciosa) of the Rutaceae family and is also known as European mandarin, tangerine, naartjie and true mandarin.
This tangy and zesty essential oil has some great properties to help relieve stress and digestive problems, but is mostly used to increase circulation to the skin, reducing fluid retention and to help prevent stretch marks.
It is a non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitizing oil, but some phototoxicity has been reported and it would be best to not expose the skin to sunlight after a treatment.
The therapeutic properties of tangerine oil are antiseptic, antispasmodic, cytophylactic, depurative, sedative, stomachic and tonic.
Tangerine oil is soothing to the nervous system and has a tonic effect on the digestive system, while helping flatulence, diarrhea and constipation. It is also useful for the skin and is used to help with stretch marks, increasing circulation and reducing fluid retention.
Tangerine is gentle and subtle oil that supports us to embrace change with enthusiasm and grace. It releases old programming that prevents us from obtaining our goals and instills confidence that we can obtain our new goals and dreams. It also asks us to be fully present so we may be consciously aware of our mental and emotional states.
Although most essential oils blend well with other oils, Tangerine oil blends particularly well with bergamot, cinnamon, clary sage, clove, frankincense, lavender, nutmeg and neroli.
