Red Mandarin Essential Oil

Red Mandarin

Citrus reticulata

Red Mandarin Essential Oil is one of the lesser known citrus oils. It has a warm, slightly floral, citrus scent to it and is a favorite of children. It has a deeper tone and lasts longer than other citrus oils.

A descendant of the indigenous fruit from South China, Red Mandarin is also a European ancestor to the American Tangerine. A dark citrus oil, Red Mandarin is deep orange or almost red in color, and acts to soothe and balance the heart energy center.

Considered safe to use on the elderly as well as children, Mandarin, red is often used as a remedy for stomach upset. Its soothing and balancing energy has superior anti-spasmodic properties, and can be used in massage blends to soothe the muscles and relieve tightness.

Red Mandarin calms the nervous system, and its pronounced relaxing properties make it effective for soothing restlessness and hyperactivity in children.

It is also effective for relieving insomnia, and has been found useful for alleviating nausea, similar in action to Ginger Root and Peppermint Essential Oils. Red Mandarin's antiseptic action makes it useful as a room spray.

It works well blended with other citrus oils, Lavender, and Ylang Ylang.

In France it is regarded as a safe children’s remedy for indigestion, hiccoughs, etc., and for the elderly since it helps strengthen the digestive function and liver.
