You may already be familiar with Red Mandarin oil from other limited time offers; Green Mandarin comes from the same mandarin tree, but is from the unripened fruit instead of the mature fruit. Its aroma is slightly sweet and floral with a tang of citrus! As with other citrus oils, it is uplifting when worn on the skin or diffused. Unlike other citrus oils, Green Mandarin has no photosensitivity! Yay!
Limonene, one of the main chemical components of Green Mandarin essential oil, is renowned for its surface cleansing properties. Limonene may also help support cellular function, along with γ-Terpinene. Green Mandarin may provide antioxidant support and help support cardiovascular health. Create a bright and energized environment while diffusing the sweet, refreshing aroma of Green Mandarin throughout your home or workplace.
Emotionally uplifting and blissfully fragrant, Green Mandarin is unique among citrus oils and offers a wide variety of uses. Its fruity aroma has subtle floral undertones, making it a desirable addition to natural perfumes and cosmetics. Thanks to its unique chemistry, it offers remarkable skin and hair benefits similar to those from Melaleuca (Tea Tree). Green Mandarin is known for its soothing properties on the nervous system and its ability to support healthy digestive, immune, and respiratory function. Green Mandarin promotes a cheerful, energized mood while soothing feelings of upset or oversensitivity.
You can also use Green Mandarin internally for soothing the nervous system, supporting the healthy function and response of the immune system, and supporting the digestive system.
Green Mandarin oil is sustainably sourced in Brazil. The doTERRA network of Brazilian citrus farmers uses the income from their green mandarin harvest to cover farming costs for the year. Later, their red mandarin harvest (from the fully ripened fruit) is mostly for profit. This creates a sustainable, steady income throughout the year for small and large scale growers, reduces green waste, and yields two beautiful essential oils with unique chemistry.
Mandarin trees needs to be thinned while the fruit is still young and unripe. Approximately 60-70 percent of the green fruit is removed from the tree during this thinning process. In the past, this unripe fruit was discarded or left on the ground to decompose, as the fruit too tart to be enjoyed. However, a unique essential oil is contained in these young, unripe fruits. The cold-pressed green rinds yield a fragrant, uplifting oil distinct from that of fully ripened mandarins (which is known as Red Mandarin essential oil). Green Mandarin offers a wider range of benefits than most other citrus oils and may be preferred for cosmetic use.
