Have you tried Tangerine essential oil before? Tangerine is the perfect springtime treat for your clients. It’s like a cross between Sweet Orange and Grapefruit, but bigger, brighter and sweeter. It tames tension, detoxifies the body, and opens the heart and mind.

Tangerine for Health

Even more welcome than the zesty scent are some of the great health-promoting properties of tangerine:

  • Increases circulation to the skin
  • Reduces fluid retention by stimulating lymphatic drainage
  • Helps prevent stretch marks
  • Aids sleep
  • Stimulates digestion

Do you know a client who could use some help in these areas this spring? A great massage with a refreshing splash of tangerine might be just what she needs.

Beautiful Blends

Tangerine essential oil is great on its own, but it also combines well with a number of oils for delicious scents and wonderful therapeutic results. Try combining Tangerine oil with Bergamot, Cinnamon, Clary Sage, Clove Bud, Frankincense, Lavender, Ginger, Neroli, Nutmeg, or Ylang Ylang.

Go Ahead!

If you’re new to working with essential oils, don’t panic about trying to decipher that long list of potential blends. Tangerine essential oil by itself has been studied for its ability to settle the mind and ease stress and anxiety. So instead of fretting constantly about your developing essential oil skills, go ahead and jump in with a bottle of Tangerine. Let the oil itself ease your worries away!
