Origin & History
Mandarins originated in China, they were originally given to the oriental majesties as a token of respect. These are currently grown in countries such as Cyprus, Algeria, Greece, Spain and some American states such as Texas and California. Over the last 200 years its popularity has increasingly grown, to this day it is widely used as a flavouring within food and drink, and its scent is used within perfumery.
Mandarin blends best with other members of the citrus family, you could try mixing it with oils such as grapefruit, bergamot, lemon, lime, neroli, orange, and petitgrain.
How to Store Your Oils: Essential oils can be quite delicate substances and factors such as strong light, heat, air and moisture can affect them. They are best kept in a cool, dark and dry place ideally in a box and in a cupboard. We wouldn't recommend transferring your essential oils into plastic bottles as the plastic can interact with the chemical makeup of your essential oils and may cause the plastic to deteriorate. Keeping them in their dark, amber bottle with the lid will prolong their life. Oils that are stored in the correct condition should last for years (citrus oils have a slightly shorter life).
Size: 10ml, presented in an amber glass bottle.
