There are some who claim Tangerine & Mandarin to be similar in blends, but I have found Mandarin to be more soothing/calming, and Tangerine to be more energizing even though they both are of the citrus family.
I do like this Mandarin in Calming Blends and it has a nice smell, very clean, but not too sweet like so many I have tried. Good quality for the price.

I ordered this with some other items from this site, but unfortunately most of it had spilled out in transit. I informed the staff of this when I received it, and was surprised to receive a message back within half an hour saying they'd sent out a replacement! So I received both excellent customer service along with one of my new favorite citrus oils, and I can't speak highly enough about either! Thank you so much!

I've had many citrus oils, this Mandarin was sweet, crisp and fresh! Exactly what I would want in a Mandarin. Thanjs!

Mandarin orange has become my energy aroma. I use it in my kitchen and living area.

This oil has a wonderful scent! I love it! Mandarins are my favorite and this really captured the smell perfectly. It blends well with my other essential oils, and I am overall very pleased with it.

When I first smelled this oil, I was a little disappointed because I expected something with a bit more punch. However, it's a sneaky little, come-from-behind, type oil. After it's been sitting for several days with its companions, it jumps out in front! I was very pleasantly surprised. I can tell that this is something I'll be buying again!

A great oil that I combine with other oils to make soap. It is very light and fragrant. This is a great company to buy essential oils from. I will be a steady customer.

This orange is light so if you are looking for that great, I added a little lemon and love it. It is fresh and helps keep me calm yet focused.

I used this to infuse a mix of grapeseed and extra virgin olive oil to use in cooking over salads and pasta. Its flavor is mild makes for some very tasty salads, pasta, and chicken dishes.
