Tangerine originates from China and Japan but got its name from Tangier, a major city in Morocco. Just like other fruits, flowers, and plants, tangerines are processed by cold pressing or distillation to extract its essential oils.
It is antiseptic, antispasmodic, cytophylactic, depurative, sedative, stomachic, and a tonic substance. This essential oil may even increase the regeneration of cells as well as collagen production, which can go a long way in minimizing the appearance of wrinkles. The oil helps to fight acne, reduce the appearance of scars and stretch marks.
It works as a relaxing agent by soothing agitated nerves. It also reduces tension as well as emotional imbalances. It also works as a sedative by relieving anxiety, depression and nervousness. It also promotes healthy sleep.
