Tangerine, Essential Oil
[Tangerine]

"Citrus Reticulata". Even the botanical name for tangerines and mandarin oranges is the same. It is native to China, and from there, it spread to other parts of the world. Just like mandarin orange essential oil, the essential oil of tangerine is extracted by cold compression of its peels and contains alpha pinene, alpha thujone, beta pinene, camphene, citronellal, gamma terpinolene, geranial, limonene, linalool, myrcene, nerol, sabinene and terpineol as its chief components.

The health benefits of Tangerine Essential Oil can be attributed to its properties as an antiseptic, antispasmodic, cytophylactic, depurative, sedative, stomachic and tonic substance.

Again, like mandarins, tangerines also hold a place of significance in Chinese culture and herbal medicines. These medicinal properties are explained in greater detail below.

Antiseptic: Staphylococcus Aureus is the species of bacteria which is responsible for this dreaded infection called sepsis. Sepsis is a really bad condition. It is not only limited to mere swelling and reddening of wounds, but also with acute pain. If not curbed, it can quickly spread to the other parts of the body and affects them as well, even if there are no wounds there. It causes acute pain, immobility and hardening of joints, as well as acute contraction and cramps in muscles, swelling, redness, fever and convulsions. It also readily attacks new born babies, since their skin is overly vulnerable to infections. It also attacks them when they are separated from their mother’s body by cutting the umbilical cord. The essential oil of tangerine contains certain components which kill these bacteria and stops it from spreading, thereby helping cure sepsis. It can be externally applied on open wounds, as well as taken orally to create a uniform effect on the whole body.

Sedative: The essential oil of tangerine soothes the body. It soothes all types of inflammation and hyperactivity in the organ systems functioning in the body, namely the respiratory, circulatory, digestive, nervous, and excretory systems. It sedates inflammation from fever, intrusion of poisonous substances in the blood stream from external sources, convulsions, anxiety, stress, and hypersensitivity of allergies. It also sedates depression, anger and impulsive responses.

Stomachic: As a stomachic, the essential oil of tangerine keeps your stomach in good condition by maintaining the proper flow of digestive juices and maintains the right balance between the acid and bile so that excess acids are neutralized. This also cures wounds, if any, in the stomach. It soothes the stomach and gives relief from inflammation. One thing must be understood; if someone wants to have a healthy and attractive physique, then he must keep his stomach finely tuned, precisely what this oil does. It helps your stomach continue to function properly.

Tangerine essential oil improves circulation of blood and phlegm, boosts digestion, helps maintain oil and moisture balance in the skin and shows cicatrisant and emollient properties as well. It also eases constipation and treats diarrhea, flatulence, rashes, dryness and cracking of skin, hair problems, and dandruff.

A Few Words of Caution

This oil may show some extent of phototoxicity in certain skin types, but in general, it is non-toxic, non-irritating, and non-sensitizing.

Blending: The essential oil of tangerine blends very well with the essential oils of bergamot, cinnamon, clary sage, clove, frankincense, lavender, nutmeg and neroli.
