Mandarin, Red (Citrus reticulata) Italy
Mandarin has a reputation for being a calming oil. It can be included in a massage oil for fluid retention or insomnia. It is a good skin toner, often included in recipes for acne, scars or stretch marks. It is one of the few essential oils which is safe to use with pregnant women and young children (well diluted).
Always dilute your essential oils in an unscented carrier oil like Sesame or Jojoba. Do not take essential oils internally. Always store essential oils out of heat and sunlight. Keep essential oils away from children and pregnant women.
