Background Information on Pure Tangerine Essential Oil

Tangerines and the pure essential oils from it, originally are from China. They were imported into Europe in the early 1800’s  and the rest of the world,  a short time later. The pure essential oil from the tangerine holds a significance in the Chinese culture and herbal apothecary as does the mandarin.

Extracted through cold-pressing the peel, tangerine pure essential oil is a source of antioxidants. It contains high concentrations of d-limonene which provide benefits for the skin, the immune system as well as emotional well being.
