Essential oil Mandarine red *ADR*

 8,95 incl. VAT  7,40excl. VAT


Essential oil Mandarin red is an essential oil for use as a fragrance raw material. For example, use the oil in perfume, air fresheners and other scented products.


Essential oil Mandarin Red has a warm citrus scent, reminiscent of mandarin. Dilution is unusual because the odour does not quickly become overpowering. It combines well with other citrus scents, and is usually used in a citrus accord. You usually use between 0,1% and 5% of this substance in the fragrance composition and in perfumes it is mainly a top note. Unfortunately, like most citrus oils, it is virtually useless in soap.

Store cool, dry and dark.


Essential oil Mandarin red is a 'red' oil at room temperature, hence the name. In practice it can vary from orange to reddish brown. The material is sensitive to light and air and therefore does not have a long shelf life. The shelf life is slightly increased because 0,1% tocopherol has been added, but we recommend replacing this oil once a year. The oil is made by pressing the peel of Citrus reticulata Blanco, or mandarin. When growing the mandarines to make this oil, no artificial fertilizers were used and no or minimal use of pesticides. Like any essential oil, it is a mixture of various substances. An indication of the composition is the following:

> 25% - Limonene
5-10% - 4-Carvomenthenol
2-5% - Myrcene, alpha Pinene, beta Pinene
1-2% - para Cymeen, Terpinolene

Besides the addition of 0,1% tocopherol, this oil is a pure essential oil.
