Mandarin (Red) Oil
Red mandarin essential oil has a fresh, bright, orangey citrus aroma (sweeter and softer than our green mandarin oil). Calming and positive, red mandarin essential oil comforts the entire system—mind, body, and heart. Use it to settle the belly while traveling, or after trying new cuisine. Red mandarin is also powerfully cleansing, steadily ushering germs away to safeguard health. Our certified organic red mandarin oil is cold pressed from the fresh rinds of fully ripe mandarin fruits in Brazil (as opposed to the unripe fruits, which create green mandarin oil).
Benefits and uses
The bright orange rind of the Citrus reticulate fruit creates a fresh, sweet, citrusy, fruity, orange-like essential oil. Along with promoting a healthy digestive system, red mandarin essential oil can help reduce the presence of unwanted bacterial and viral activity. This essential oil can help ease unwelcome muscle spasms as well as help support healthy lung and airway function. Try using red mandarin essential oil in a diffuser blend when working to ease cold and flu symptoms, especially when looking to relieve chest and sinus congestion. Red mandarin essential oil can help soothe sore muscles and calm agitation. Red mandarin essential oil is best used at around a 1% dilution (5-6 drops per ounce of carrier) as it could potentially be skin irritating to some.
Emotionally and energetically, red mandarin essential oil soothes and calms. This essential oil can help release and recirculate stagnant, blocked energy. Red mandarin essential oil calms emotional distress and is immensely supportive when one is working through situational anxiety or depression. It can help inspire greater self-care and encourage one to ask for help if feeling reluctant to do so.
