Reduce Overwhelm + Embrace life with Red Mandarin Essential Oil., dōTERRA, HOO Happiness

Overwhelm and I are BEST FRIENDS.

Seriously - we hang out so much together.

We wake up together. Drink coffee together. Run errands together. Go to work together.

Overwhelm is pretty much holding hands with me the whole day.

I have to work really hard not to let overwhelm run my life and drive me into a anxiety ridden day.

One of the ways I do this is a blend that features Red Mandarin as the main event.

This oil is a special gift as you cannot actually purchase it.

It is only given during special offers. So if you are here reading this then there is a special offer you should take advantage of.

Here is how you can use Red Mandarin to Reduce Overwhelm + Embrace Life:


While Green Mandarin essential oil comes from the unripened fruit of the mandarin tree, Red Mandarin—also known as Tangor and Temple Orange—comes from mature mandarin fruit. doTERRA Red Mandarin essential oil is sourced in Brazil. 

Citrus oils are uplifting, energizing, and cleansing; Red Mandarin is no exception. It promotes positive, cheerful feelings. You can take advantage of this benefit by diffusing, breathing it from your hands, or even applying to your skin. Red Mandarin also has calming properties on the nervous system when taken internally.* 

Red Mandarin contains 65–75 percent limonene in its composition. Limonene is a chemical component found in high concentrations in most citrus oils—it accounts for citrus oils’ cleansing and uplifting effects. However, Red Mandarin and Green Mandarin’s compositions also includes gamma-Terpinene (y-terpinene), which is found in Tea Tree (Melaleuca) and other purifying oils. Red Mandarin is cleansing to the skin and air. It can be especially helpful in improving the appearance of oily skin. 

Red Mandarin essential oil is beneficial to the digestive system when taken internally.* Dilute one drop in 4 oz. of water. Considered the sweetest of the citrus fruits, its fruit is used in salads and desserts. You may enjoy adding a few drops to drinks, smoothies, and other recipes not just for the digestive benefits*, but also to add a different, sweet twist to your usual flavors.

All about Red Mandarin Essential Oil, dōTERRA, HOO Happiness


The biological and physiological activity of essential oils comes down to their chemistry. Red Mandarin’s composition is much like most other citrus oils in its high concentration of limonene, but there are a few twists. Depending on harvesting conditions, approximately 65% to 75% of Red Mandarin’s composition is the cleansing and uplifting monoterpene known as limonene, but it is also rich in an aromatic compound often associated with CuminBlack Pepper, and Ginger essential oils: gamma-Terpinene (up to 14%).

Research has shown that gamma-Terpinene may have cleansing properties. The concentration of gamma-Terpinene adds to the already potent surface and skin-cleansing abilities of limonene. Whether you are looking for a mild skin toner and clarifier, a great addition to your DIY all-purpose cleaner, or something a little different that can uplift your mood when diffused, Red Mandarin is a great choice.
