Mandarin Essential Oil

Mandarin Essential Oil

Mandarin is another variation of the orange that has its origins in China and South East Asia. Here at Indigo Herbs we have a pure Mandarin Essential Oil made from this relation to the wild orange. Thought of as being a completely different species the mandarin tree is usually a little smaller than the common orange depending on species. Mandarin essential oil is a refreshing, light and zestful botanical that has many uses. It is traditionally known for its skin healing properties. It is an anti-spasmodic and has a light fruity top note that relaxes body, mind and spirit.

 Thought to have descended from Northern India more than 3,000 years ago the Mandarin travelled throughout India and China before they were imported to England from Canton in 1805. The name of this easy peel orange came from the colour of the robes that Chinese officials wore during this period. Being a deep orange colour and speaking Mandarin these officials were likened to the new fruit from China. The mandarin then spread from England to Australia in the 1820’s and then on to America in the 1840’s from Italy. The ‘Willow Leaf’ variety then moved from New Orleans to Florida and California. Later mandarins with red skin were shipped from Tangier in Morocco and became known as Tangerines.

 With age and depending on variety mandarin trees can reach heights of 7 meters. The tree is quite drought resistant although does not bare up well to cold. Branches are usually thin and quite tender producing thorns and single broad ovate leaves. The flowers are usually single or appear in pairs with fruit appearing later.

Mandarin has a soothing effect on the emotional body and can bring relief in the case of insomnia, anxiety, low mood and stress. With its beautiful sunshine colour the essential oil is actually nourishing to the nervous system. It is also thought to be uplifting and restorative to the mind, bringing back zest and concentration.

Using Aromatherapy in your daily routine is simple, easy and can be enormously beneficial. Pure neat essential oils can be evaporated into the environment and inhaled while products that have already been diluted in an oil can be applied straight to the skin. There are lots of different ways to utilize the pure neat essential oils; these can be made into a room spray or used in an an essential oil burner/ vaporizer.

This is a lovely way to perfume an environment and essential oils are very good at effecting the mood, mind and emotions when evaporated into the air. Adding essential oils to your bath is the best way to ensure the oils are absorbed through the pores of the skin while also inhaling the vapors; maximum benefit can then be had whilst enjoying a soak. Additionally the neat oils can be diluted into a carrier medium. This can be a cream, body butter, face cream, vegetable body oil and bath salts to name a few. For full instructions go to our How to use Aromatherapy page.

Mandarin essential oil can be put into a hot bath or used topically on the skin in a carrier oil or cream. Mandarin oil can also be vaporized in an oil burner to set an atmosphere in a room, or a steam inhalation can be done to ingest directly into body. Use 6-8 drops per bath and 10 -18 drops per 30ml of carrier oil. See Essential Oil Dosage Chart

Manufacture Process

Our essential oils are manufactured to GMP standards using steam distillation, extraction or expression. During steam distillation the plant matter is put into boiling water or infused with steam. The steam is collected and the oils are separated from the water. During extraction, a solvent is used to extract the oil, by creating a concrete. This concrete is made up of plant matter, resins, waxes, and essential oils. A second solvent, such as ethyl alcohol is used to extract the essential oils from the concrete, this creates an absolute. During expression the plant matter is pressed (at cool temperatures) to release the oils.

Essential oils need to be diluted first; never apply an essential oil directly to the skin. Avoid contact with eyes and mouth. Rosemary should be avoided during pregnancy because it is a uterine stimulant. Excessive amounts can cause symptoms of poisoning. It should also be avoided by epileptics.
