ABOUT THE PLANT
Mandarin is a small tree, growing to 4m with a single trunk and many, thin-spined or spineless droopy branches. The tree resembles other varieties of oranges with small glossy leaves and fragrant white blossoms. Mandarin fruit looks like a rather flattened sphere, with peel color that varies from green to yellow to deep orange-red when fully ripe. The Mandarin orange is a variety of Rutaceae sometimes confused with Satsuma and Tangerine. In English speaking countries the fruit is called Tangerine.

Application and Use
This oil is non-toxic, non-irritant and non-sensitizing. It has, however, been known to be very phototoxic, so it is best not to expose skin to intense sunlight directly after application. This oil is safe for use during pregnancy and with children.
