With its sweet and intense aroma, so characteristic of citrus fruit, red mandarin oil is the sweetest in the family of citrus essential oils. The fruit being native to China, mandarin oil is a key element in traditional herbal medicines.
This intensely flavoured essential oil is cold pressed from the peel of mandarin oranges. The refreshing taste and aroma of mandarin makes it an obvious choice for food production in sweets, ice-cream and carbonated drinks. It’s also a popular addition to colognes, perfumes and cosmetics for its uplifting and fresh-smelling scent.
The sweet, uplifting aroma of organic red mandarin essential oil mixes particularly well with other citrus oils.
