Call Mandarin the cheerfulness-maker. Its tangy and sweet floral tones, extracted from the citrus peel, evoke thoughts of orchards and trees, gladdening the heart and making you feel like yourself again. The beautiful scent is renowned for helping when you’re feeling fragile, making you feel balanced and sprightly. One of the best oils for nausea and morning sickness, it’s also a great stomach soother and its astringent properties are great for calming oily skin.
Common Uses:Mandarin essential oil has been known to be beneficial for acne, congested and oily skin types. Use a drop of oil along with your regular moisturizer at night, since this oil is photo-sensitive. Blend with other oils like Neroli and Lavender with a carrier oil, to use on stretch marks. Use 5-10 drops in a diffuser in your home or work space to help banish anxiety, nervousness and nausea, and to boost the immune system and aid with overall organ function. This oil helps to maintain the acid and base balance in the stomach, protecting against conditions like ulcers and infections and helping stimulate the appetite after a bout of illness.
