There is nothing quite like the clean, sweet, refreshing smell of a bright orange Tangerine on a cold day. It’s enough to bring warmth and life to even the longest and dreariest of winters.
Beeyoutiful®’s Tangerine Essential Oil is all that and more in a bottle. Tangerines have been prized in Chinese culture for thousands of years for both food and medicinal uses. The unique name comes from Tangier, a city in northern Morocco, where tangerines first made their way into European culture.
This essential oil, cold pressed from the skin of the tangerine, is orange in color and contains a large percentage of limonene as its active ingredient. It helps aid in brightening a dreary mood, can help relax and at the same time invigorate the mind, and is considered a great cleanser. Tangerine pairs well with Frankincense, Lemon, Cassia, Clary Sage, Patchouli, and Clove.
Cleaning: Mix 12 drops of Tangerine, Lemon, Spearmint, and Thyme into a 32 oz spray bottle and fill with water. Shake well and use to clean and disinfect. Try adding a few drops of tangerine oil to your dishwasher each cycle to boost cleaning and as an added rinse agent.
Diffusing: Tangerine can be diffused alone to help brighten the mood or relax the mind, or mixed with several other oils as well. Chamomile and Tangerine with a hint of Cinnamon is a great combination for relaxation. Tangerine and Patchouli are a great pair to assist with cleansing after illness.
