If you like the scent of citrus oils but often find them too sharp, you will love Tangerine for its milder and lighter aroma. Its unique scent may even be described as both woody and citrusy! Just like all the other citrus varieties, however, you can count on Tangerine to bring in the warmth of spring and summer into your household!
Speaking of household, Tangerine offers a lot of practical uses at home. Often used as a flavouring for beverages, baked goods, marinades, frosting and more, this oil is also quite popular in toiletries, perfumes, bath and beauty products, and homemade cleaning products. Add Tangerine essential oil to your DIY dishwashing soap, air fresheners and surface cleaners to leave your home smelling fresh and clean!
One of those really happy scents, Tangerine essential oil is useful for nervous tension, anxiety, depression, and healthier sleep. It is also useful for skin and hair problems, getting rid of cellulite, as well as relieving symptoms of constipation, diarrhoea, digestive system disorders, dizziness, intestinal spasms, and a lot more!

ECO. essential oils are sourced from ethical sources and chosen from suppliers specifically to contain the best active constituents. ECO. essential oil blends have been crafted and blended from the pure essences of plants; their single oils are 100% pure and natural, and highly concentrated with therapeutic properties.
Add 2-4 drops of essential oil per 100ml of water to your diffuser. Some oils may require 4-8 drops to be added.
Add 3-10 drops of essential oil to a personal inhaler to inhale as needed.
Essential oils should always be diluted before applying to the skin. Blend essential oil with coconut oil, almond oil or any other suitable carrier oil for massage.
Essential oils are natural, but they are also concentrated. We recommend following basic safety precautions when using your oils:
Essential oils should not be ingested, unless it is under the guidance of a suitably qualified practitioner.
Do not use oils undiluted on the skin, unless the instructions permit otherwise. Many oils can cause irritation when placed directly on skin, particularly on sensitive areas such as the eyes or mouth. Some oils (particularly those in the citrus family) can cause photosensitivity if used prior to going out in the sun - please check instructions carefully.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should consult your healthcare practitioner prior to using essential oils. As a general guideline, oils should be avoided for the first four months of pregnancy and never used undiluted. Some oils should be avoided during pregnancy: Bay, Basil, Cedar wood, Clary Sage, Comfrey, Cypress, Fennel, Ginger, Hyssop, Jasmine, Juniper, Lemongrass, Marjoram, Melissa, Myrrh, Peppermint, Rose, Rosemary, Sage & Thyme.
Children can be particularly affected by essential oils. Some oils should not be used in children under the age of 7, and specific dilution ratios are recommended depending on the essential oil and the age of the child. We recommend consulting an appropriate practitioner prior to using oils on children.
