Although closely related in its genealogy to Tangerine, Mandarin produces a remarkably different essential oil. It is native to China, from where it got its name, the Mandarin. Currently, Italy and Brazil are one of the biggest mandarin producers. The essential oil from green mandarins has a vibrant, fruity green citrus note which is less sweet than the essential oil obtained from red mandarins.
Our Green Mandarin essential oil from Brazil is one of the most calming essential oils. It is an excellent choice for cleansers & toners due to its balancing effect on skin. It also has astringent, antiseptic, antibacterial and antioxidant properties make it and effective for oily & acne prone skin.
The presence of the highly sedative anthranilic acid ester, as in red mandarins, makes this oil the first choice for use with children suffering from anxiety, nervousness, or stress. Although green mandarin essential oil is not indicated to be phototoxic, we suggest erring on the side of caution and not to use topically prior to sun exposure.
