This is yet another essential oil from a citrus fruit. You might be familiar with “tangerines”, and when you study about essential oils of mandarin oranges, you will find that tangerines are almost identical to mandarin oranges, with the exception that it is has a deeper orange color, lacks pips, and is harvested in a different time of the year than mandarin oranges.
Even the botanical name for tangerines and mandarin oranges is the same. Botanically, they are both known as Citrus Reticulata. 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.

As with all essential oils, never use them undiluted. Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner. Keep away from children. If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier.)
