An Algerian priest, Pierre Clément, is credited with crossing a mandarin and an orange in 1902, which resulted in a seedless mandarin with a looser skin that was easier to peel - the clementine. Clementine essential oil is extracted from the peel of the fruit through cold press processing. The essential oil is pale yellow in appearance with a fresh citrus aroma and it blends well with other essential oils from the citrus family like lemon, lime and grapefruit
With it's refreshing aroma, clementine essential oil is known to combat fatigue, improve mood and revitalize. With anti-bacterial and anti-oxidant properties, it is also thought to be good in the treatment of skin blemishes and acne. When used in massage it is thought that it can help with detoxing. It is considered to be effective in aromatherapy to help with restlessness and tension.
