2. Reduces Pain, Anxiety and Nausea through Aromatherapy

Mandarin essential oil may be one of the best essential oils for anxiety and nausea. A study published in Complementary Therapies in Medicine examined the use and effectiveness of essential oil therapeutic interventions on pain, nausea and anxiety when provided by nurses to patients in acute hospital settings across a large health system. Ten Allina Health hospitals located in Minnesota and western Wisconsin did a study using the delivery of aromatherapy within their facilities.

The outcome was great, showing a change in patient-reported pain, anxiety and nausea. There were 10,262 hospital admissions during the study time frame in which nurses provided aromatherapy as a part of their patient care. There were several oils used, and while each had its strengths, the overall outcome was positive showing that mandarin essential oil provided improvements to the patients. (2) So if you’re looking to relieve nausea through aromatherapy treatment, try mandarin oil.

Studies have been conducted showing that the oils from natural plants, such as mandarin essential oil, are sources of molecules that may develop new analgesics and provide benefits when used to fight or reduce pain. There were noticeable characteristics, such as a pungent effect and tingling due to their possible role in the central nervous system.

In this study, mandarin essential oil was obtained and then purified. The purified mandarin was found to be similar to another type of known molecule that is capable of blocking pain. The terpenes, which are compounds found in mandarin essential oil, may be used to create analgesics in human therapy against pain. (3)

4. Protects Food from Bacteria

Mandarin essential oil contains antimicrobial activity. Studies were conducted to evaluate the effects against Listeria innocua and the impact on color and texture of green bean samples. In this study, a “bioactive coating formulation based on modified chitosan containing 0.05% nanoemulsion of mandarin essential oil was tested in combination with γ-irradiation, UV-C and ozonated water treatments, and the results in terms of antimicrobial activity, color and texture changes, were evaluated during 14 days storage.” (4)

The treatment showed positive results in microbial reduction. It also helped prevent the loss of firmness and color changes of foods during storage, which may give way to a healthier alternative for food preservation, according to the findings published in the International Journal of Food Microbiology.

5. Helps Combat Cancer

The effects of the essential oil of mandarin peel and limonene were studied on two human tumor cell growth lines. Both mandarin essential oil and limonene, a chemical found in the peels of citrus fruits and in other plants, were tested showing the inhibition of tumor growth of these cell lines. This could lead to the development of anti-tumor agents and the treatment of cancer through alternative medicine. (5)
