Tangerine Essential Oil – Uplift Your Spirit and Boost Immunity
This is yet another essential oil from a citrus fruit. You might be familiar with “tangerines”, and when you study about essential oils of mandarin oranges, you will find that tangerines are almost identical to mandarin oranges, with the exception that they have a deeper orange color, lack pips, and are harvested in a different time of the year than mandarin oranges.
Even the botanical name for tangerines and mandarin oranges is the same. Botanically, they are both known as Citrus reticulata. They are native to China, and from there, they have spread to other parts of the world. Just like mandarin essential oil, the essential oil of tangerine is extracted by cold compression of its peels.
Tangerine oil comes from the fruit’s outer peel and has a warm, fresh and citrusy aroma. Because of its sweet, tangy scent and calming effect, it’s a perfect fit for any early morning ritual.
