The tangerine fruit was used throughout history in Chinese culture and herbal health practices. Tangerine essential oil smells like the tangy, sweet-smelling aroma that comes from the tangerine fruit. Cold pressed from fruit of the Citrus reticulata tree, Tangerine oil contains antioxidants* and can be used in a variety of recipes for its flavor. With a fresh scent and countless uses, this is a helpful essential oil to have in your collection.
The high terpene content in citrus oils can limit their application in water based food and beverage consumer products. Partial or full deterpenation of the oil results in improved solubility and varying odour profiles depending on both the method and extent to which it is carried out.
