    An exotic, cooling & refreshing tonic. Gentle yet strengthening, calming yet uplifting, revitalizing and inspiring

    About Mandarin Essential Oil: This delectably scented oil is a joy to use if you are anxious, depressed, fearful or just need strengthening emotionally. Ideal if you are having trouble sleeping, recovering from illness or feeling generally run down and in need of a delightfully effective pick-me-up.

    Description of Aroma: Delicately orange-scented and tangy with sweet floral undertones - typical of the freshly grated fruit rind.

    Ruling Planet: Sun

    Properties Beneficial To The Mind, Emotions And Spirit: Reputed to strengthen the astral body, mandarin can help inspire, cheer and strengthen you emotionally. It may ease tension, fear, sadness and irritability. The uplifting influence of this oil can help lift depression and reduce anxiety, and yet it has a gentle calming action that may dispel insomnia and sleep disturbances. In fact a recent study in a nursing home showed mandarin to be more effective than lavender for insomnia. Some authorities state this oil is helpful with inner child work.

    Of Interest: Mandarins probably originated in China, they have certainly been known in this country since antiquity. The fruit was given to the oriental majesties - known as Mandarins - as a token of respect, hence the name.

    Its popularity in Europe has grown in the last 200 years and it is now cultivated extensively, especially in the Mediterranean region. During the Second Word War the production of oil in America was stopped temporarily, because of the difficulty in importing the Italian fruit, and Brazil took over exporting mandarins to the U.S. It is reputed that the essential oil produced in Italy is lighter and of a superior quality.

    The tree likes hot, humid climates and produces fruits prolifically. It is the semi-ripe fruits which yield the highest quantity of oil. Mandarin oil has a much finer and stronger scent than tangerine (which is a hybrid) and the fruit is the softest, most delicate of all the citrus fruits, having a very refined, sweet taste and a soft peel.

    Children, pregnant women and the young at heart frequently enjoy this deliciously scented oil. In France mandarin oil is often regarded as the 'Children's remedy' because of its gentle action. The oil is used widely for flavouring food and drinks, and also in perfumery.

    Properties Beneficial To The Physical Body: This oil has a soothing action on the nerve centres, while having a revitalizing and strengthening effect on the body. It is therefore useful if you are feeling fragile or run down, and is particularly beneficial for the elderly. Its major application is for the digestive system, as it regulates the metabolism, has a tonic effect, calms the intestines and stimulates the appetite. This makes it a valuable aid, especially after illness or loss of appetite due to stress or depression. Useful for morning sickness and P.M.T. mandarin can also ease hiccups and children's tummy upsets.

    Mandarin is an excellent tonic for oily skin and acne, and mixed with lavender and neroli is said to lessen stretch marks and scarring.

    Mandarin Oil Blending Suggestions: The effects of mandarin are often enhanced by blending with other citrus-derived oils, such as grapefruit, bergamot, lemon, lime, neroli, orange, and petitgrain. It is also worth considering basil, black pepper, coriander, rose, chamomile, lavender, and palmarosa.

    Alternative Suggestions For Use: Put mandarin in a spray bottle with pure water for a delightful antiseptic air freshener. Also try it for the prevention of stretch marks during pregnancy - although it must be applied regularly.

    Essential Safety Precautions: Considered a relatively safe oil, even for pregnant women and children (in dilution). It may be phototoxic if you have sensitive skin, so avoid exposure to sunlight and U.V rays after application.

    Dictionary Terms Explained

    Holistic Trader own brand oils - Essential oils
    We take great pride in the quality of our essential oil range.

    * They are non-adulterated and are as produced at the still
    * We specify the country of origin for each oil
    * Each oil has been independently tested by French chemist
    * Our essential oils are not blended unless we say specifically say so
    * No middlemen - straight from soil to bottle

    Originally the Holisticshop range of essential oils went under the name of Windflowers. This company was founded by a qualified aromatherapist, selling high quality oils to shops and aromatherapists throughout UK and the world. In 2003 the opportunity came up for Holisticshop to buy Windflowers, which we did. This acquisition has meant that since this time Holisticshop customers have been able to buy high quality oils at the price professional aromatherapists would expect to pay.

    Lower quality oils are available on the market but we continue to pick the best quality source for every oil. For example our lavender oil is "High Alpine" lavender from Mount Ventoux in the Pyrennes and the ylang ylang is the "complete" oil, not the ylang ylang II or III which come from a different stage in the distillation process. In the current climate essential oil prices on the open market have risen quite dramatically and some sellers are cutting quality. We have maintained quality, bought well and kept as competitive as always.

    We do not buy anonymous drums of essential oils on the open market and we do not redistill lower quality oils to remake a “scientifically” higher grade oil that does not smell great (this happens sometimes with ylang ylang). We know the country and the growers of all our oils. Please be assured by the care we take with making sure our oils are great quality. You will smell the difference.
