Mandarin Essential Oil (1/3 oz.) by Starwest Botanicals
Warm, fresh citrus scent, radiant, fruity and tangy. Although closely related, Mandarin Orange is rounder and softer in aroma than Tangerine.
Aromatherapy Properties: Refreshing and rejuvenating, its aroma inspires and brings fresh energy; clears the mind. Citrus oils help to eliminate emotional confusion and increase ones sense of humor and well-being. Very comforting, soothing and warming.
In moderation, Mandarine Orange is an effective skin care ingredient, but avoid large concentrations due to potential phototoxic reactions. It can also be a great discovery in the kitchen; use very sparingly in sauces, dressings, pastries and desserts (we recommend certified organic Mandarin Orange for culinary uses).
Starwest Essential Oils are the life force in every living plant, containing the essence or soul of the plant. Essential Oils come directly from the roots, bark, wood, seed, fruit, leaves or flower of a plant (sometimes a wheel barrow of flowers will produce only a few drops of oil).
The essential odor, taste and medicinal properties of each plant can have pronounced effects on the mind, body, emotions and spirit, which can enrich your senses. Research on the psychological and physiological effects of essential oils is well documented. They have been used for centuries to soothe, heal and rejuvenate the body and soul.
Starwest Essential Oils are 100% pure and natural plant essences, quality tested in our laboratory. Nothing added and nothing taken away. Therapeutically effective and of the highest “Aromatherapy quality”, our essential oils represent the finest quality available today.
Starwest’s 86 varieties of Essential Oils and Certified Organic Essential Oils are extremely versatile, having a multitude of uses such as Aromatherapy, cooking and flavoring, scenting body care products, creating perfumes, enhancing potpourri sachets and more. Starwest Essential Oils are packaged in amber, light resistant bottles with a dropper for every use.
Continuing to Support Sustainable agriculture, Starwest also offers 24 varieties of Certified Organic Essential Oils. Grown in compliance with the National Organic Program.
Use a few drops in a diffuser to freshen the aroma climate of your home. Add a few drops to the water when washing dishes or cleaning the house. Add very sparingly to food for an exciting Mandarin Orange flavor, for example, in desserts, salads and pastries.
Try making your own 'gingerbread honey' or syrup, and adding it to tea or desserts. This is not only delicious but helps to soothe the stomach as well. The following is a wonderful recipe for such a honey, great also for a homemade gift.
To 2oz. of maple syrup or honey, add:
* 3 drops Ginger Essential Oil
* 1 drop Cardamom Essential Oil
* 1 drop Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil
* 3 drops Vanilla Essential Oil
* 8 drops of certified organic Orange or Mandarin Orange Essential Oil
Citrus Essential Oils are among the few Essential Oils with a limited shelf life. Keep your citrus oils away from heat and direct sunlight, and in tightly closed containers; your fridge would be great! Try using them within 6 months of purchase. Older oils may not be appropriate for medicinal or skin care purposes, but can still add citrus-power to a diffuser blend.
Natural essential oils are highly concentrated and should be used with care.

I purchased several different essential oils in the citrus line, and although this has a nice scent, it isn't my favorite. I prefer the Sweet Orange. This one is nice though, and for those not wanting something as sweet the Mandarin would be a good choice.
