Natural Blends are blends of oils from various natural sources to achieve an economical product that resembles the aroma of the pure oil. Natural Blends are all natural, and do not contain any synthetics, artificial flavours, or aromatic compounds. They are not therapeutic grade but are suitable for all natural product preparations and can be used to fragrance various cosmetic products.

Aroma: Tangerine Five Fold Essential Oil has the typical citrus scent – fresh, radiant, and tangy sweet. Subtly tangier than mandarin. Tangerine is lighter than sweet orange with more candy-like tones.

History: Tangerines were originally brought to Europe and then the United States from China where they have been cultivated for 3,000 years!

Five Fold Citrus Essential Oils are more concentrated in colour and scent than cold pressed citrus essential oils. Through extended distillation, sun-sensitizing turpenes are removed, rendering the oil safer for daytime skin application. Due to the increased concentration of essential oil fragrance and colour, five fold oils are perfect for use in perfumery, soap and candle making.

Colour: Golden yellow to orange liquid.

Common Uses: Tangerine Five Fold Essential Oil, like most of the citrus family, can be depended upon for its refreshing and rejuvenating characteristics. Its aroma clears the mind and can help to eliminate emotional confusion and irritation. Aromatherapists also consider it to be comforting, soothing and warming. Tangerine Essential Oil is credited with being antispasmodic, carminative, digestive, diuretic, sedative, stimulant (digestive and lymphatic), and a tonic agent.

Similarly, the oil should be diluted well before use on the skin. Avoid use during pregnancy.
