The plant in depth

The mandarin orange, also known by its botanical name of Citrus reticulata Blanco, is a citrus fruit native to Southeast Asia. Widespread in China and Vietnam, the mandarin did not reach Europe until the 19th century, when it was planted in the Italian regions of Calabria and Sicily, alongside bergamot and sweet orange. It grows on a small, rounded tree of the same name that grows three to six meters high. Its dark-green, shiny leaves are narrow and elongated, smaller than on other Citrus trees. In June, the mandarin tree is covered with very fragrant white flowers that release a subtle, pleasant scent. They give way to globular fruits, each having a slightly flattened top and bottom, which are harvested in January. Their shiny skin is covered with scent glands that give off a zesty scent when the fruit is peeled. Our 100% pure and natural Italian red mandarin essential oil is obtained by cold expression of the pericarp. Red mandarin belongs to the same botanical species as the yellow mandarin. It differs only by being riper, with a more intense peel color and a citrus fragrance with notes that are bitterer and less tangy than found with the yellow mandarin.

The common name “mandarin” is a reference to China, this fruit’s native land. The high dignitaries of the former Chinese Empire, called Mandarins, did wear ceremonial robes of an orange color reminiscent of the mandarin peel. This juicy, sweet, very flavorful fruit was long reserved for the upper classes and considered a luxurious dessert. Besides its popular taste, the mandarin also boasts recognized therapeutic properties, having calming, sedative properties that promote mental and physical relaxation.
