Prepares babies for a restful sleep. In addition, it tones and tightens the skin giving it radiance.
Mandarin essential oil has traditionally been used in Chinese medicine and Ayurveda to calm the mind, relax the body and facilitate sleep.
The main ingredient in mandarin oil is d-limonine, which makes up about 75% of its chemical composition. D-lemonine has many benefits for our health, particularly its anti-inflammatory action. Chronic inflammation, an accumulated reaction of the body to infections or injuries, can damage long-term tissues and organs, change the structure of DNA and increase oxidative stress, leaving us exposed to many serious diseases, such as dementia, cancer and cardiovascular disease.
However, researchers have found that d-limonine can suppress the expression of various proteins and enzymes associated with chronic inflammation. In modern research, mandarin oil in aromatherapy has been found to possess soothing and anti-stress properties by reducing anxiety symptoms. Inhalations of its essential oil significantly increase the duration and quality of sleep. It also provides strong relief from post-operative pain. Mandarin oil has been shown to be a valuable source of antioxidants, inactivating free radicals that destroy our body cells. Working just as effectively as vitamin C, mandarin oil is a natural remedy for age-related ailments as well as external signs of aging. In cosmetics it is used to balance the skin's oiliness and dryness.
It has very good anti-aging properties, instantly giving radiance to dull skin and restoring lost elasticity. It is a key ingredient in slimming products as it promotes fat burning, tightens and reduces the appearance of stretch marks.
