Tangerine Essential Oil


Tangerines remind me of Fall in Japan.  They are called mikan in Japanese and are abundant in the fall.  Every gathering I went to from September thru the Winter included a bowl of tangerines.

Tangerine is one of my new favorite essential oils.  It has a brighter more pungent aroma than orange and smells like fresh peeled tangerines.  The latin name is Citrus reticulata with some production in the United States.
