In Chinese culture, the tangerine fruit established its name as an emotional cleanser, as it was often used to keep negative emotions at bay. During spring when most people were bubbling with joy and embracing the spring-cleaning bug, the tangerine fruit was freshly picked and placed in every room to set the tone and encourage positivity.
Much can be said about the oil today. Tangerine essential oil plays on the emotions to dispel irritability, mood swings, frustration, and bursts of anger.
Cold-pressed from the peel of the fruit, tangerine oil is useful for digestive issues, including constipation, flatulence, and bloating.
