Wholesale Pure Yellow Mandarin Essential Oil

100% pure Mandarin essential oils, cold pressed from the peels of Mandarin fruit from Italy. Called "the children's remedy" in France for its broad range of soothing effects. The Red mandarin oil is the sweetest of the bunch, with the Yellow following close behind. The yellow mandarin is unsprayed and is a beautiful oil for a lower cost. The green is like a sweet-tart citrus candy, a really fun aroma and color. All are really very nice, from Italy, where the soil and climate conditions produce some of the world's finest citrus fruit essential oils. Our Yellow Mandarin Oil is available from sample size up to 1 kg or more.


Mandarin is a small evergreen 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 while it is called Mandarin elsewhere. Of the three Mandarins, Green, Yellow, and Red, the green has the sharpest, brightest sweet-sour scent and most tart flavor.


This essential oil is cold pressed from the skin of mandarin fruit grown in Italy.
