Mind & Spirit:
Considered very uplifting aromatically mandarin is the sweetest of all the citrus oils.
The oil of mandarin oranges also improves the circulation of blood and lymph, particularly below the skin, which keeps the skin rejuvenated and looking young and vibrant. This improved circulation also creates warmth and provides relief from rheumatism and arthritis. This also aids growth and boosts immunity.
Mandarin essential oil is adaptable and can be used to treat a wide range of physical and emotional conditions. A few drops added to a carrier can be used in massage to treat stretch marks and fluid retention effectively.
Mandarin oil has a mild antispasmodic effect which makes it useful for relaxing muscle spasms, and when massaged on the abdomen helps to relieve gas and tummy ache.
Its cheering, uplifting and relaxing aroma is ideal for treating negative emotional conditions such as anxiety, nervous tension, stress, irritability, restlessness and tantrums – with both grown-ups and children!
Add 4-6 drops of oil to an oil burner or diffuser to enhance your mood.
May be added to water for a relaxing bath and tonic.
