Yellow Mandarin Essential Oil

Welcome the newest addition of the Mandarin family: Yellow Mandarin! Yellow Mandarin is cold pressed from the rind of a partially ripened Mandarin. It’s sisters, on the other hand, are derived from the ripe (red) and unripe (green) fruit. The aroma of Yellow Mandarin can be described as bright, zesty, and refreshing with a taste similar to lemon but with tangy-sweet top notes. Mandarins were introduced to Europe in the 1800s and brought from Italy to the United States in the 1840s.


First and foremost, Yellow Mandarin is an excellent candidate for helping prevent infections. It can protect wounds from contamination only because of its powerful antibacterial properties. Furthermore, Yellow Mandarin forms a protective covering on the wound and can promote the collection of blood platelets and leucocytes on the perturbed site, therefore blocking the intrusion of certain microbes. In a 2018 study recorded in the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, the results concluded the oil itself has such potent bacterial and fungal properties that it proves to be an effective protection against infection.

To use Yellow Mandarin for wound protection and infection, apply two-to-three drops to site with a small amount of dilution or blend with other proactive essential oils like OnGuard, Oregano, or Melaleuca in a rollerball topped-off with a carrier oil.

Like it’s sibling, Lemon, Yellow Mandarin (and most citrus oils) can detoxify the body to a certain extent. These oils can purify the blood by helping to remove toxic substances from the body by means of excretion. That includes urine, fecal matter, and sweat. Also similar to its citrus brethren, Yellow Mandarin can improve digestion by stimulating the discharge of digestive juices and bile in the stomach. It also may increase the appetite.

Yellow Mandarin for digestive health is most useful when taken internally with a veggie capsule or in water. Keep in mind: if want to add citrus oil to water, be sure to use glass or stainless steel. You may also add two-to-three drops to the belly.

Lastly, I shouldn’t neglect to mention Yellow Mandarin’s relaxant properties. Its sedating effect works to relax and calm nervous afflictions and disturbances. In fact, the oil was used in both Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine for calming the mind, relaxing the body, and inducing sleepiness. A study conducted on the effectiveness of Mandarin essential oil on rodents concluded a significant decrease in expressions of anxiety.

 You may apply yellow Mandarin for emotional instances topically or aromatically. Use one-to-two drops of the oil on the back of your neck and over your heart. You can also diffuse three-to-four drops in a diffuser of your choice.


Like all citrus oils, Yellow Mandarin is photo-toxic. Avoid sunlight or UV rays for up to 12 hours after applying the product.
