Tangerine oil has been used for centuries in the Chinese culture as both a means for cooking and for promoting good health. It can be added to just about anything: teas, baked goods, savory dishes, sauces, smoothies, and salad dressings. The bright and citrusy flavor can add a delightful taste to any dish that needs to be amplified. The powerful scent has the ability to wake up the mind and energize you throughout the day. It can be inhaled frequently whenever you begin to feel drowsy. The strong source of Vitamin C in tangerine can help maintain a healthy immune system, which is very beneficial when the flu starts to go around.*
