History of Mandarin Essential Oil

The history of mandarin essential oil is just as rich as the health benefits that you can get from it.In 1805, the mandarin fruit was brought to Europe from China by a historian named Sir Abraham Hume. It was first introduced to England, then Malta, Sicily, and Italy, respectively. The mandarin fruit grew popular, and the plant or tree was cultivated until it evolved into an entire species of what’s now called Mediterranean mandarin.These days, there are more than 30 species of the mandarin fruit. The Mediterranean mandarin became dominantly cultivated in Italy and was extracted of its essential oil for its various health and beauty benefits. Thus, Italy became one of the largest exporters of mandarin essential oil, together with France, New Zealand, and others.
