Mandarin (Citrus reticulata)
Anti-depressant, tonic to digestion, lymphatic stimulant
I love mandarin. It is joy in a bottle! It has a refreshingly sunny & uplifting citrus aroma. I use it in my Happy Drops roll-on and with children (and adults!) who struggle finding their joyful, playful side. I use it in my community visits a great deal to address flatulence, indigestion & poor appetite. It is also useful in preventing and treating stretch marks and cellulite especially pre & post childbirth.
It is considered an oil of the heart, to find the strength to soften, and to feel emotionally lighter. I use it to temper mood swings & anger, address depression with anxiety, melancholia and guilt.
It blends well with bergamot (link) for acute stress especially linked with digestion and depression. With petitgrain (link) or lavender as a nervous restorative for long term stress.
£5.06 for 5ml

Avoid use if:
- sunbathing after applying to skin; may be phototoxic, accelerating sunburn
- keep out of reach of children; although a great oil to use with children under supervision
In a collection of peer reviewed studies, mandarin among other oils, was found to reduce anxiety in the first stages of labour (Ghiasi et al; 2019) https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC6428160/ although more rigorous studies are recommended.
As a regulating oil, mandarin is used for mood swings & for people living with ASHD & bi-polar disorder.
In France, mandarin is considered the children’s remedy for soothing restlessness, tummy upsets & calming hyperactive children. I have prescribed it with success as part of a remedy to help children on the autistic spectrum focus in school or calm before bedtime.
