Absolute Aromas and every oil in the organic range have been certified by the Soil Association. Each oil can be traced back to the farm where the plant was grown, through each stage of production and finally to the beautiful finished product. The organic range has been sourced from many reputable farms around the world. Absolute Aromas have visited many of the farms themselves, in order to ensure that the high levels of quality and purity that have made Absolute Aromas stand out in the marketplace, remain at the forefront of their company ethos.This organic oil is extracted from the skin of the fruit using a ‘Pellatrice’ machine. Mandarin has a sweet, familiar aroma and is considered one of the gentler oils making it popular for use by pregnant women and on children in very low dilutions. After a hard day, try soaking in a bath containing 3 drops of Mandarin, 3 drops of Geranium and 2 drops of Patchouli all blended in a teaspoon of Apricot Kernel oil. If pregnant, a gentle massage of the bump using 1 drop of Mandarin in a teaspoon of Apricot Kernel is always pleasant. As with all essential oils, extra care must be taken during pregnancy, particularly during the first trimester. If in doubt, seek medical assistance, or consult a qualified aromatherapist.
