Tangerine is one of few essential oils that is not considered phototoxic so it is considered safe to use safely diluted in topical applications and be in the sunlight!  Tangerine is one of my favorites for calming emotional support.  It is also beneficial before bedtime to quite the mind  It is economical, sustainable and who doesn't love the smell of sweet orange goodness?  I find tangerine to have more of an orange scent and stick around a bit longer than your typical sweet orange.  This is also safe to use on little ones and blends well with just about anything.

Tangerine is a monoterpene and one thing about monoterpenes is they will have a longer shelf life when stored refrigerated.  Monoterpenes are also know to cause dermal sensitization more readily when they are oxidized so keep your citruses stored in a cool dark place to ensure you get the most life out of them.

With our pre-diluted oils . . . if diluted for kids is the highest dilution you see, it’s also the max dilution possible. Pre-diluted oils are in fractionated coconut oil.

    Tangerine was one of my first purchases from here, and I’ve had it from another place, but this one smells like tangerines and I’ll be buying it again from here when the time comes.

  2. Megan Klein (verified owner)

    I received this oil free with my first DeRu purchase. This oil is the real deal. It smells exactly like peeling a fresh, juicy tangerine. I have this oil from another company which I thought smelled close enough, but there is now no comparison. The DeRu oil is leaps and bounds above the other company! Can’t wait to try more DeRu oils!

Tangerine essential oil Safety Info

According to Tisserand and Young, there are no known hazards or contraindications.  Tangerine essential oil should still follow the safety guidelines below. ~ Source:  Tisserand, Robert and Young, Rodney. Essential Oil Safety: A Guide for Health Care Professionals: Churchill Livingstone; 2 edition (2013). Reading the full profile for Tangerine essential oil is highly suggested by your DeRu Staff.

While we’ve made this clear that we are selling this essential oil to use in your diffuser, your inhaler, or topically (diluted), it is a pure essential oil and can be used as such.  With all essential oils:

  • Never use them undiluted, in eyes or mucus membranes (this includes mouth, ear canals, noses, genital regions as well as internal areas).  The strength of essential oils can easily damage these soft tissue areas.
  • Do not take internally unless working with a qualified and expert practitioner.
    Keep away from children.
  • If applying an essential oil to your skin always perform a small patch test to an insensitive part of the body (after you have properly diluted the oil in an appropriate carrier).

  • Oral Safety is only given because many people have been told to take oils internally.  Because several people look to us for safety advice, we feel obligated to offer those safety statements, although we do not believe anyone should be ingesting essential oils without being guided by an expert.  Experts will take your medical history into account before they suggest oils for you to ingest, diffuse, or use topically.
