About Tangerine Essential Oil
Tangerine Essential Oil (Citrus reticulata) from the USA is Therapeutic Quality Essential Oil. It is known by several botanical names, including not only Citrus reticulata but also Citrus nobilis, Citrus deliciosa, Citrus tangerine and others.
The tangerine is a type of Mandarin orange but it is smaller and sweeter in taste than other types of oranges. The tangerine is, in fact, a hybrid cross between the Mandarin orange and the pomelo, an ancient natural (non-hybrid) citrus fruit native to South and Southeast Asia. The tangerine takes it name from the port of Tangier in Morocco as this was the first port through which it entered the Western world.
Tangerine Essential Oil is produced by expression of the peels and has a wonderful fresh, citrusy aroma that is sweeter, brighter and more intense than that of Sweet Orange Essential Oil. It’s been described by aromatherapists as having a calming yet gently uplifting effect and to also be helpful for relieving spasms. Like Sweet Orange Essential Oil, Tangerine Essential Oil has been said to have antiseptic properties and is popular for this reason as a constituent in household cleaning products. Many aromatherapists believe that this essential oil is helpful for increasing circulation and reducing fluid retention.
