Mandarin (Citrus Reticulata) belongs to the Rutaceae flowering plant family.  Mandarin Essential oil is extracted from oil-containing cells in the skin. A machine breaks up the cells, and uses a water spray to flush off the oil. The oil/water mixture is then filtered and separated by centrifugation.

Mandarins oranges are thought to be descendants from wild oranges that grew in northeast India around 3,000 years ago. From India, mandarins made their way to China and from China to Europe, North Africa and Australia before they traveled on to other parts of the world.

The first of these small, loose-skinned oranges were brought to England from China in 1805. From England, the mandarin made its way to Italy in the next decade, and from Italy it came into wide cultivation and spread to other Mediterranean countries including several in North Africa. From China, the mandarin was introduced into Australia in the 1820s.

Where the name comes from: The mandarin gained its nickname when it was introduced into England. Mandarin denoted the form of Chinese spoken by public officials and other educated people in China. The robes worn by public officials or mandarins in the Chinese empire of that time were deep orange and so this Chinese import was dubbed a mandarin.



Fun Facts About Mandarins: 

  • The name “mandarin” refers to the bright orange robes worn by the Mandarins, who were public officials of the ancient Chinese court.
  • Although cultivated for over 3,000 years in China, mandarin oranges did not reach Europe and North America until the nineteenth century.

Single note essential oils:

  • Always keep a door open so that the animal can enter and exit the room easily
  • Take note of how your pet responds at all times and if you notice your pet resisting an aroma, discontinue use and move them to a well-ventilated space
