Tangerine essential oil is cold-pressed from the rind of the fruit. Its aroma is very citrusy (duh)
and sweet. It's a lesser used oil, so I feel it's benefits are still being discovered, but a look
at its popular properties can give us some clues.
Tangerine has high levels of d-limonene and overall benefits the immune system, skin, and emotions
in its various uses, as well as a digestive aid. I've heard it's a suitable replacement for
grapefruit essential oil if needed.

Soothing and relaxing
Cleansing and purifying

Emotionally, tangerine seems to be similar to Wild Orange, uplifting moods and is said to impact a
person's creativity. It can help to increase playfulness and happiness, helping us get out of our
heads and live more spontaneously or light-heartedly. In this way it might be helpful for people
who feel overwhelmed, overworked, stuck, heavy-hearted, depressed, cranky, or just "blah".
