Green Mandarin Oil Citrus nobilis

Don’t you just love learning about new essential oils? Well, Green Mandarin essential oil is known for supporting healthy digestive and immune systems when used internally.* Also a cool thing to know is that Green Mandarin essential oil is pressed from the unripened fruit of the mandarin tree, while Red Mandarin essential oil comes from a more mature fruit. This oil has some pretty amazing properties which include being anti-coagulant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antispasmodic, antitumor, antiviral, expectorant, laxative, and sedative.

Primary Benefits of Green Mandarin oil

  • Supports healthy nervous, digestive, and respiratory systems when consumed*
  • Known for its soothing and uplifting aroma
  • Internal use helps maintain healthy immune function*

This has been such an amazing oil for us as of late because we have just recently lost some pretty special people in our lives. The aromatic scent of Green Mandarin oil is bright, fresh and has been effective for soothing strong emotions such as anger, grief, and shock. It can also be sedating and calming to the nervous system while promoting courage and quiet strength.

Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of choice.

Internal use: Dilute one drop in four fluid ounces of liquid or take in a capsule. You can also use a flavoring in cooking or salad dressings.

Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. See additional precautions below.

This oil is Kosher certified.

Internal Use

Green Mandarin oil is regarded as safe (GRAS) for human consumption by the FDA so you can dilute 1 drop of oil in 1 tsp. of honey or in a 1/2 cup of yogurt, although this oil is not recommended for children under 6 years old. And when using Green Mandarin oil topically use with caution and in greater dilution for children and the elderly or health compromised. All essential oils that are dated or oxidized oil may irritate highly sensitive skin, so be sure to note the expiration date on the bottom of every bottle you get directly from doTERRA. Because this is a a citrus oil for topical application I always recommend dilution for proper absorption and safety.

  • Incorporate Green Mandarin essential oil in your home as a food preservative or dilute it in a spray bottle to clean the surfaces of your kitchen.
  • You may experience the benefits of this oil when taken internally as it may help soothe the nervous system.*
