- Test Report
Italian Mandarin Essential Oil is considered superior in the aroma industry. Mandarin Essential Oil is cold pressed and hand harvested.
The fruit must be harvested as soon as it has ripened or it will spoil. Once the fruit is harvested, it must be distilled right away in order to avoid any damage to or spoiling of the fruit, as it is very delicate.
Mandarin Essential Oil is most commonly used to ease anxiety and tension in children, as it is gentle, yet effective. Mandarin may be used as a powerful digestion facilitator, as the oil promotes digestive juices and bile flowing into the stomach.
Try two drops of Mandarin Essential Oil on the tongue, followed by a glass of water after a large or uneasy to digest meal.

Combines the brightness of a citrus with sedative properties. I often add this to sleep blends.
This oil is quite light but really blends nicely with other oils. I use it frequently in sleep blends when I want a citrus lift that is still somewhat sedating.
My least favorite of my mandrin oils.
