Benefits of Tangerine Essential Oil:
The tangerine essential oil has the ability to calm the mind and relieve the symptoms of anxiety and stress. It can be safely used whenever you feel the need for some mental calm and its sedative properties also make it ideal when you feel the need for a good night’s sleep.
The antiseptic properties of tangerine essential oil can be used topically to fight the growth and spread of several types of bacteria. Apply it directly to any minor wounds or cuts to help kill bacteria at the source and to disinfect the affected area of the skin. By applying tangerine essential oil you can also help reduce swelling and redness of the affected skin.
Tangerine oil consists of a good amount of cytophylactic properties that can encourage the generation and growth of new cells. This property of tangerine oil makes it useful for aging or mature skin that needs rejuvenation and helps speed up the healing of skin damaged by burns.
Tangerine oil is quite helpful for decreasing inflammation and pain. Research from 2003 has shown that tangerine oil inhibits 5-lipoxygenase (5-LOX) which is actually responsible for the inflammation response. 5 LOX levels normally increase as we get older so lowering this might prove especially beneficial to older people.
As we put on weight, our skin stretches, becomes loose and saggy. This ultimately leads to the creation of stretch marks on the body, mostly on the thighs, buttocks, upper arms and abdomen. Tangerine essential oil helps in getting rid of stretch marks, just massage the oil on the affected areas, and you will be sure of positive results under a week.
Tangerine essential oil is a common ingredient in a number of skin care products because of its antiseptic and anti-fungal properties. Like other citrus oils, it is one of the essential oils that can be used for acne and other skin complaints.
