Health Benefits of Mandarin Essential Oil

The health benefits of Mandarin Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties like anti septic, anti spasmodic, circulatory, cytophylactic, depurative, digestive, hepatic, nervous relaxant, sedative, stomachic and tonic.

Mandarin is a citrus fruit which is also known as Mandarin Orange or Tangerine. But there is a slight difference. Mandarin is more yellow in colour and come with pips while Tangerine is more orange in colour and is without pips. So, Mandarin Essential Oil is also called Tangerine Essential Oil. The botanical name of both of these plants is Citrus Reticulata, which shows that they are same. As the name suggests, Mandarin plant is native to China from where it went to Europe and now Italy is one of the biggest producer of Mandarin Oil. The essential oil is extracted by cold compression of the fresh peels of these fruits and contains are alpha thujone, alpha pinene, beta pinene, camphene, citral, citronellal, gamma terpinolene, geranial, geraniol, limonene, linalool, methyl methylanthranilate, myrcene, nerol, sabinene and terpineol. Mandarins had a place in Chinese culture as they were given as gifts to the Mandarins (the name given to Chinese officials under the king).
