This Mandarin is made with Green Mandarin oil. Mandarin fruit peels are used to make three different Mandarin oils, Yellow, Red, and Green. The oil produced depends on the ripeness of the fruit. Green is pressed while the fruit is still young and green, Red is pressed when the fruit has completely ripened, and Yellow is pressed when the fruit is in the middle of the ripening stages. Green Mandarin oil's sweet, zesty, citrus aroma adds an interesting fresh, vibrant, fruity green citrus note in any natural perfume. However, Green Mandarin oil is also a great choice for lotions and other skincare products.
