Tangerine Oil Product Description Used throughout history in Chinese culture and herbal health practices, the tangerine fruit produces a tangy, sweet-smelling essential oil. Cold pressed from fruit of the Citrus reticulata tree, Tangerine oil contains antioxidants and can be used in a variety of recipes for its flavor. With a fresh scent and countless uses, this is a helpful essential oil to have in your collection.
Tangerine Oil Uses and Benefits
To utilize the cleansing and purifying properties of Tangerine oil, consider using it in homemade cleaning agents. Adding a few drops of Tangerine to your homemade all-purpose spray will leave countertops and surfaces in the home fresh and clean. Not only will a DIY essential oil cleaning spray help you remove any grime from the surfaces around your home, it will also leave behind a lovely smell—especially if you use Tangerine oil.
Like other citrus essential oils, Tangerine oil can help support a healthy immune system when taken internally. Because it contains powerful antioxidants, this oil can be useful when you want a little extra support for your immune system. To utilize the immune-supporting benefits of Tangerine oil, consider adding one or two drops to your water to take internally.*
Tangerine oil can also be used topically to help promote feelings of happiness. When you need some extra sunshine in your life, apply Tangerine oil topically to flex points or your abdomen. If you are concerned about skin sensitivity, be sure to dilute with carrier oil before applying to reduce the risk of skin sensitivity or irritation.
While the flavor of Tangerine oil can be helpful for adding variety to desserts and baked goods, it is also useful when added to your favorite beverages. You can always add a few drops of Tangerine essential oil to your water, morning smoothies, summer lemonade, or tea when you need some extra flavor. Remember—you don’t need many drops of an essential oil to add a lot of flavor to your drink, so start small. You can always add more drops if you feel like you need more flavor.
Tangerine essential oil also holds uplifting properties during aromatic use. When you want to uplift or energize your mood, put one to two drops of Tangerine oil on your palm, rub your hands together, and place your hands over your nose for 30 seconds. If you prefer to enjoy the uplifting scent of Tangerine oil for a longer period of time, consider adding a few drops to your favorite essential oil diffuser and experience the refreshing aroma as it fills the room.
Plant Description Tangerine fruit grows on the Citrus reticulata tree, an evergreen that bears bright orange, sweet citrus fruit and white flowers. Because of the sweet scent and taste of the tangerine fruit, it is commonly used for desserts, beverages, and spreads. The tangerine fruit is also frequently eaten plain, because it is easy to peel and considered a juicy, delicious snack. Tangerine essential oil is taken from the peel or rind of the tangerine fruit through the process of cold expression. While the process of steam distillation uses heat to extract essential oils from plants, the process of cold pressing extracts the oil from the rind of the fruit.
Chemistry of Tangerine Oil Main Chemical Components: Limonene
Essential oils like Tangerine that have high levels of the monoterpene limonene are often known for their ability to have stimulating and enhancing effects on mood. The stimulating and mood-enhancing effects of tangerine can be experienced by using the oil aromatically—diffusing or inhaling the essential oil. When found in essential oils, limonene is also known for its cleansing and purifying properties, which makes it helpful for cleansing surfaces around the home.
Oils that Blend Well with Tangerine As a sweet, citrus essential oil, Tangerine blends well with a variety of oils for diffusion. When you want to embrace the scents of fall, consider blending Tangerine oil with warm, spicy oils like Cinnamon Bark or Clove. You can also blend Tangerine oil with other citrus oils like Bergamot or Lemon for a bright, uplifting aroma. The tangy scent of Tangerine essential oil can also blend well with mint essential oils like Peppermint or Spearmint.
Lemon Oil Product Description As one of doTERRA’s top selling oils, Lemon oil has a variety of uses and benefits. With a clean, fresh, citrus aroma, Lemon is known for its purifying properties. Often used in cleaning products and air purifiers, Lemon has distinct cleansing and deodorizing characteristics that make it a popular choice for cleaning surfaces and purifying the air.
As a versatile oil, Lemon also has the ability to aid in digestion and support healthy respiratory function when taken internally. Whether it is being diffused, taken internally, or applied topically, Lemon essential oil offers a variety of benefits.
Lemon Oil Uses and Benefits
Add Lemon oil to your water for a refreshing taste or as an alternative to sodas and sugary drinks. When taken internally, Lemon oil can also naturally cleanse the body and aid in digestion. You can even add a drop of Lemon oil and sliced fruit to your water for a delicious infused flavor.
Whether you like working on your bike, your car, or projects in the garage, you know the frustration of trying to get black grease off your hands. Give your soap a little extra cleaning power by adding a few drops of Lemon oil to your soap mixture, and give your hands a good scrub.
Have you ever tried using Lemon oil for skin? Lemon oil can help exfoliate your skin. When incorporated into your skincare routine, Lemon oil can help give your complexion a refreshed, healthy looking glow.
When diffused, Lemon oil provides an uplifting environment and promotes a positive mood. Due to the chemical makeup of this oil, it has been shown to help improve mood with an energizing and invigorating aroma. If you want to diffuse Lemon oil, use three to four drops in the essential oil diffuser of your choice.
Diffusing Lemon oil will also help cleanse and purify the air and surfaces in your home. Whether you are trying to eliminate airborne odors, or just like to keep your house smelling fresh, bright, and clean, Lemon is an optimal choice for diffusing—on its own or in a diffuser blend. Looking for a good Lemon oil diffuser blend? Add 2 drops of Lemon, 1 drop of Lime, 1 drop of Lavender, and 1 drop of Rosemary to your diffuser for a “Clean Summer Kitchen” aroma.
There are several uses for Lemon essential oil when it comes to cleaning and preserving furniture. By adding a few drops of Lemon oil to olive oil, you can create your own non-toxic furniture polish at home. When applied to furniture, Lemon oil leaves a clean shine, prevents fine wood finishes from drying out, and can replace lost moisture in antique woods as it penetrates worn finishes. When trying this polish on your own homemade furniture, always apply the polish in an inconspicuous spot before applying it to the entire piece.
While Lemon can work wonders with wood furniture, it is also useful for maintaining leather furniture. Use a Lemon oil soaked cloth to wipe down your leather furniture to help preserve the piece, and prevent leather from splitting.
You can add a sweet and zesty punch to your favorite treats and dessert recipes when you add a little Lemon essential oil. When used properly, Lemon oil often adds a sweet, sugary taste to desserts, without the processed sugar or other alternative ingredients.
Lemon oil is a great remedy for the early stages of tarnish on silver and other metals. Just put a couple drops of Lemon oil on a cotton ball, and rub on the tarnish to bring back the natural beauty of your metals.
A major benefit of Lemon essential oil is its purifying properties, which makes it the perfect component for homemade cleaning agents. Add Lemon oil to a spray bottle of water and use it as a homemade cleaning solution when you wipe down your countertops, baby high chair, bathroom sink. Add vinegar to make the solution even stronger. The beauty of a homemade cleaning solution made with Lemon essential oil is that it doesn’t include all the chemicals that store-bought cleaners have.
Stubborn, sticky residue used to be an annoyance, but with the help of Lemon essential oil, you can get rid of goopy messes without hours of scrubbing or the use of toxic chemicals. Adding a little Lemon oil to a rag will help you get rid of sticky messes in practically no time at all.
