Clementine Essential Oil

You participated in the Product of the Month promotion; you got a free Clementine. Now what the heck do you do with it? Great question! Let’s discuss.


Clementine is a special citrus oil because it’s a hybrid of mandarin orange and sweet orange. The oil derives from the rind of the fruit, citrus clementina, and is more tolerant of temperature variations than its siblings. Its aroma is similar to that of Wild Orange but with subtle Lemon notes. Like most citrus oils, Clementine has limonene and is renowned for its uplifting properties on the mood.

Clementine is a source of natural folate and may help brain function. This includes reducing feelings of stress and depression. Furthermore, folate content can protect unborn babies against neural tube defects. Also known as folic acid or vitamin B-9, folate helps synthesize DNA and aids in normal growth cells, especially in infants and children. A deficiency of folic acid in infants and toddlers is highly detrimental. However, Clementine can be used to normalize folic acid levels.

Being rich in folic acid, which is also an antioxidant, helps keep skin firm and healthy. Clementine oil contains anti-inflammatory properties that may also be helpful for skin care.

Citric acids like Clementine aids in the battle against acne-causing bacteria to keep skin clear of imperfections.

Lastly, Clementine has anti-mutagenic properties such as vitamin C and powerful bio-active molecules such as limonoids and quercetin. These compounds fight free radicals in our body, stabilize them and prevent them from causing oxidative damage to our cells. By fighting free radicals, these compounds can then eliminate toxins and reduce the burden from our vital organs.


You can add one-to-two drops of Clementine to your water in a stainless steel or glass cup. Also, you can apply Clementine directly depending on your desired use. However, for emotional health, I recommend diffusing three-to-four drops and applying over heart and on bottoms of feet.


Like all citrus oils, Clementine is photosensitive. Do not indulge in direct sunlight for twenty-four hours after applying.

Clementine is no longer available for this month. However, for those who participated in this month’s promotions, we’d love to hear you testimonies on Clementine!
