The name Mandarin, comes from the fruit that was a traditional gift to the Mandarins of China. There are two varieties of this oil; Mandarin, mainly from Europe, and Tangerine, mainly from the United States. Mandarin and Tangerine are considered the same botanical species although there is a slight difference in fragrance between the two. Mandarin tends to be preferred for therapeutic aromatherapy.
Red Mandarin is one of the safest essential oils and is particularly recommended for children and for use during pregnancy. Mandarin is an uplifting, cheering, soothing oil. It helps to calm the nervous system, and its relaxing properties make it effective for soothing restlessness, and hyperactivity in children. It has a slightly hypnotic effect and is therefore useful for calming an over-active mind and promoting a restful night's sleep. It is also reputed to be useful for alleviating nausea, having a similar action to Ginger and Peppermint essential oils.
