Tangerine (Citrus reticulata)
You will love tangy Tangerine! Just like the other citrus oils, it is also cold pressed from the rind of the fruit. It is similar to Orange but still unique in itself with a warmer, more tangy aroma.
Tangerine can have a calming effect and restore emotional balance. If you’re needing emotional support this is a great choice for your blend! Also, it has sedative properties which make it a good option to encourage restful sleep for those rough nights.
When applied topically it has properties that can relax sore muscles. The antiseptic and antifungal properties of this oil make it beneficial for acne. It kills bacteria and has been applied to wounds to disinfect. Great to know something that smells so wonderful can be so good for your skin too!
It may also support digestion by maintaining the normal balance of digestive enzymes in the stomach.
