Tangerine -- Doesn't the word make you feel happy?

Tangerine is one of the most popular among the citrus essential oils.

Derived from the peel and rind of the fruit, its aroma is tangy and sweet. One of the primary active ingredients, Limonene is what brings the uplifting benefits to the aromatic use of this essential oil.

Oils high in Limonene have been shown in numerous clinical trials to reduce workplace stress. 

Tangerine, as well as other citrus oils, are popular ingredients in skincare formulas… and may just be what you are looking for to help with the skin irritation that occurs from time to time with increased mask-wearing. 

As with all essential oils, there are a variety of benefits that accompany a whole oil and the complex chemistry of Tangerine Citrus reticulata.

It may also be beneficial in relaxing sore muscles and discomfort related to disrupted nerve function.
