Tangerine, or Citrus Reticulata, shares the same properties as the Wild Orange as stimulant and mood lifter. It boasts of increased content of d-limonene which supports the body’s defense mechanism and improves the health of the digestive system. It may be used interchangeably with grapefruit essential oil. Tangerine essential oil is derived from the rind of its fruit by cold pressure. It has sweet and tangy aroma which blends well with cinnamon, bergamot, clary sage, frankincense, clove, lavender, neroli, and nutmeg.
Yet another citrus fruit that quite resembles the Tangerine is the Mandarin orange. It’s just that Tangerines have darker orange color, lacks seeds, and are harvested in a different season.
Tangerine essential oil can prevent indigestion and constipation, relieve skin rashes, speed up wound healing, control diarrhea, eliminate dandruff, and maintain a healthy hair.

I LOVE this oil. I used it to make my own shampoo - I filled a bottle with 2/3 water, 1/3 Dr. Bronner's Castile Soap, and about 10 drops of this oil, and I now have tangerine shampoo. I also made floor cleaner with it: a bucket full of warm water, a squirt of Dr. Bronner's, about 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar, and 10 or so drops of this. I mopped up doggie pee and the smell was gone! it worked better than the enzyme liquid you can buy! Will be buying more of this when I run out.
