What Is the Difference between Yellow Mandarin and Red Mandarin or Green Mandarin? 

Green, Yellow, and Red Mandarin essential oils all come from the same fruit but are produced during different times of the ripening process. Green Mandarin oil comes from the peel of the unripe or green fruit. Red Mandarin comes from the peel of the fruit once it is fully ripened and is red or orange in color. Yellow Mandarin comes from the peel of the fruit when it is partially ripe. 

While the three Mandarin oils are all similar in chemistry and uses, each is still slightly unique from the other because the ripening process subtly changes the chemical profile and aroma of the oil produced. 

Fun Fact

The name “Mandarin” is taken from the title of counselors in the Chinese imperial courts who wore bright orange robes and headpieces with buttons that resemble the fruit.

What is Red Mandarin oil?

Because the south of Brazil has the ideal climate for growing the highest quality citrus fruits, this the prime location for doTERRA to source Red Mandarin essential oil. In order to be harvested, the Red Mandarin needs to be ripe, which can take up to six months. Once ripe, the fruit is harvested between June and September and the peels are cold pressed to create Red Mandarin essential oil.

What essential oils blend well with Red Mandarin oil?

The citrusy aroma of Red Mandarin pairs well with other citrus essential oils like Grapefruit oil, Lemon oil, and Lime oil as well as doTERRA Serenity oil, Peppermint oil, and Helichrysum oil

How to Use Yellow Mandarin Oil

Because limonene is cleansing, Yellow Mandarin is a great oil to work into your natural cleaning routine. Plus, you'll love having its pleasant aroma lingering around the home when you’re done. 

To take advantage of the internal benefits of Yellow Mandarin while also enjoying its delicious and subtle citrus flavor, add a couple drops to your water. You could also put it in a smoothie or mix it in with yogurt and fruit. 

Another simple way to take it internally is in a veggie capsule. You can also put a few drops under your tongue. You might use one of these methods after trying a new type of food or eating a large meal.

For skin that looks healthy and clear, use Yellow Mandarin on your face. You can add a drop to your facial cleanser or wash off skin-toner. 

Because Yellow Mandarin is a citrus oil, it is important to avoid sunlight and UV rays for at least 12 hours after applying it to the skin to avoid any photosensitivity. One way to do this is to use Yellow Mandarin during your evening skin care routine.
