Tangerines are around right now and they make such a festive addition to the holiday season. This little reddish-orange fruit is closely related to, and possibly even a type of mandarin orange. It’s diminutive size and ease in peeling and segmenting are not the only reasons to love this fruit as it has such a refreshing and sweet taste and aroma and beneficial nutritional properties. Tangerines are a great source of vitamin C, folate and beta-carotene. They also contain potassium, magnesium, vitamins B1, B2 and B3 and the super-flavanoids lutein and zeaxanthin.
Tangerine essential oil, like all citrus oils, has wonderful cleansing and detoxifying properties which make it great for congested skin and astringent properties which are great for toning and firming. This makes tangerine essential oil perfect for tightening aging skin as well as brightening dull complexions caused by excessive oil. Its flavanoids and vitamins make it a great antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and cell-regenerating (hence an all-around killer anti-aging) ingredient. It also helps in reducing stretch marks and having a positive effect on cellulite. To top it all off, it’s sparkling aroma is appropriately refreshing, de-stressing and uplifting for the holidays!
