Botanical Name:Citrus reticulata blanco var tangerine
Main Constituents: Limonene: 90 - 95%
Plant Part: Fruit Peel
Processing Method: Cold Pressed
Description / Color / Consistency: A thin, clear, pale yellow to reddish orange liquid.
Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma: A middle note with a medium aroma, Tangerine is typically fresh, tangy and sweet. With only subtle differences, it smells much like Mandarin. In comparison to Sweet Orange, Tangerine is lighter with sweeter notes.
Product Abstract: The Tangerine tree was originally native to China, but is now grown predominantly in the United States and Sicily. The tree is also very similar to the Mandarin. Tangerine Essential Oil, like most of the citrus family, can be depended upon for its refreshing and rejuvenating characteristics. Users may see Tangerine Essential Oil used in perfumes, some toiletries and soaps.
Cautions: This essential oil may contain phototoxic properties and it is suggested to avoid exposure to the sun after application to the skin. Dilute well before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.
WARNING Prop 65: This product contains a component which is listed under California Proposition 65. California residents will receive this product labeled accordingly.

Rating: I bought this EO after reading the reviews, thank you guys, very helpful, and YES, it does smell divine- out of this world- like a bag of tangerine--hmmmm -- planning on using it with the rice oil that I got for face and body massage for my clients, and made my own potion serum , added a few drops to the citrus toner and added a bit of vit C and voila, antioxidant serum :-D Love it!!!

By:Christina, Woodbridge, New Jersey Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-May-2010
Rating: This is one of my favorite oils. It has a sweet popping smell of peeled tangerines, great for lip balms and soaps. The smell is also very uplifting. I've also found this works much better than other oils for dreaming, using a drop or two on the top part of the bottom of the feet.
By:Garrett, Cedar City, Utah Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Apr-2010
Rating: very fresh and inviting. Has a cross scent between sweet orange and grapefruit
By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005

Rating: My little Jack Russel was having a bad day. She seemed sad, almost downright gloomy. After taking a drop of Tangerine on my fingertip and rubbing it on her chest, she seemed much happier, more alert and ready to play. Thank you!
Rating: Fantastic tangerine, very bright and sweet.

Rating: Beautiful scent and extrememly relaxing. If you need to calm down or a sleep aide, Tangerine is it.
By:Vanice, Cambridge, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Sweeter citrus, smells very clean. It's not very strong, which has helped when I've blended it in products where some of the other oils are strong but need something else. It keeps the whole thing from becoming overpowering. I like it with clove and tea tree blends.
By:Gretchen, Phoenix, Arizona Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Jul-2008
Rating: smells just like tangerine.
sweet and fresh. makes good smell with lemon.
By:Soo, Etobicoke, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Yummy, fresh, sweet but not too sweet, citrus scent! I like this in blends when a sweet orange oil would get overpowered by other stronger scents.
By:Judith, Reisterstown, Maryland Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 26-Mar-2006
Rating: This smells quite close to the Blood Orange EO but not as sweet...blends wonderful with Pink Grapefruit EO
By:Karina, Richmond Hill, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Sep-2007

By:Colette, Alliston, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is another one of those nice, light citrus scents. No chemical smell, just a pleasant fruity scent. Can't go wrong with this stuff!
Rating: I absolutely hate fake citrus scents, but nothing to worry about with this scent! It smells just like a freshly cut tangerine! Another great selection for my in-the-works line of baby products... and for products for myself!
By:Stephanie, Cochrane, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Tangerine is one of my favorite oils, especially mixed with pink grapefruit in a nice refreshing mist. I keep the mist in the refridgerator for an extra cooling sensation. Perfect for those hot summer days. (but be sure to use carefully or with sunscreen as they are phototoxic oils). Really nice quality and a fantastic price. I've not seen a better tangerine yet.
