Tangerine is one of the very few essential oils which is safe for pregnant women. It contains a-pinene, d-limonene, cadinene, myrcene, y-terpinene, linalool, and citronellol
It is a good addition to a massage oil or lotion for oily skin, acne, and stretch marks. It can be diluted in Sesame oil and rubbed on the stomach for indigestion, gas, nausea, stomach cramps, and menstrual cramps. It is also reputed to help drain excess lymph from the system.
