All of the citrus essential oils have an uplifting effect on the mind and spirit. Use this oil to blend with other oils as you would any citrus essential oil. The one advantage of using Mandarin Orange essential oil for topical applications is that it only MAY be phototoxic. You may have less chance of receiving a sunburn when using this oil topically over other citrus oils that ARE phototoxic. We still advise caution.
Old or oxidized oils should be avoided due to the chance of skin sensitization. Appears to be less phototoxic than other citrus oils. Caution advised.
