Mandarin (Red) Oil
Our certified organic red mandarin essential oil is cold pressed from the fresh rind of the ripe mandarin fruit cultivated in Italy. We have two kinds of mandarin essential oil, green and red. Our red mandarin essential oil is cold pressed from the fully ripened mandarin fruit as opposed to the young, green fruit used in cold pressing green mandarin essential oil. Red and green mandarin essential oils are very similar in therapeutic benefit, although they do differ in aromatic profile. Red mandarin essential oil is sweeter with softer floral notes than the more tart, bright, crisp green mandarin essential oil. One of our favorite ways of using this essential oil is to support a healthy digestive system.
