Tangerine essential oil has a bright, rounded citrus aroma that is a lovely addition to homemade blends or just by itself. It is high in limonene constituents and created by cold-pressing the rinds of tangerines.

Tangerine aroma is very calming and uplifting, promoting happy feelings and helping you overcome feeling stuck. Some of our favorite uses with tangerine essential oil is:
