BiofloreMandarin (red) essential oil - organic
Possessing perhaps the sweetest scent of any citrus oil, mandarin, red or green, is both luscious to the senses and kind in its therapeutic action. Its gentleness makes it ideal for soothing stomach problems in children and the elderly.
Mandarin essence is widely used because its relaxing and soothing action as well as its always appreciated smell placed it at the head of the anti-stress aromatic products. It harmonizes the central and autonomic nervous system, and is perfect to sanitize the air when used in a diffuser.
The oil improves and lifts general skin condition but is particularly useful for toning and easing away stretch marks. Can also be used for depression.
The essences of mandarin also seem to have appetizing and digestive qualities and are quite used for culinary flavoring. Originally from China mandarins are named after the Chinese mandarins who received these fruits as a gift by tradition.
