What are the health benefits of Mandarin Oil?
1. Prevents Infections
Mandarin Oil protects wounds from becoming septic as well as from other bacterial, fungal or viral infections. It forms a protective barrier over the wound and promotes scabbing. In a 2018 report by the International Journal of Molecular Sciences, the oil itself has bactericidal and fungicidal properties and kills them, thereby adding to this protective effect.
2. Relieves Spasms
A spasm in the respiratory system can cause breathing troubles, congestion, and exhausting coughs while muscular spasms cause cramps and muscle pulls. Spasms in the digestive system can cause vomiting and aches in the stomach and intestines while a spasm in the nervous system can result in nervous afflictions and convulsions. There are several treatments, but one that is herbal and has no adverse side effects is a mandarin essential oil. Just a few drops and the spasm will be relieved.
3. Improves Blood Circulation
The oil of mandarin oranges also improves blood circulation, particularly below the skin, which keeps the skin rejuvenated and looking young and vibrant. This improved circulation also creates warmth and provides relief from rheumatism and arthritis.

Mandarin Oil purifies the blood by helping remove toxic and unwanted substances from the body by means of excretion, including urine, fecal matter, and sweat. This prevents diseases that result from the deposition of toxins, such as abscesses, boils, acne, gout, and arthritis.
