Tangerine 100% Pure Essential Oil
This bright, orange-colored citrus fruit is a smaller, less sour version of its first cousin, the Mandarin orange. Tangerines grow on 15-20 ft. trees that flourish in subtropical regions. Popularly known as “easy peelers,” tangerines can be segmented and enjoyed out of hand or in many complex dishes. For thousands of years, these citrus gems have been used to refresh senses, promote serenity and help reveal healthy skin.

History of Tangerine
For over 3,000 years, the versatile tangerine was cultivated in China and Japan, but this gem of a citrus eventually branched out to Europe and North America in the 19th century. Its very name comes from exotic Tangier, Morocco. Today, most U.S. produced tangerines grow in sunny Florida and California and are a culinary delight. In its essential oil form, this wonderfully sweet, fresh and citrusy fruit promotes happiness and helps with occasional stress and tension.
