Clementine oil, Italy is a great value. Compare prices. TOS's Clementine has a fresh sweet scent with beautiful delicate body notes superior to most citrus oils. The aroma is not unlike the fresh fruit. Italy's climate produces this excellent Clementine with good color. It blends nicely with all Citrus and especially with Tangerine, Mandarin and Orange. It is a blissful aroma.

Perfumists, aromatherapists, and individuals interested in home remedies may be intrigued by sweet clementine oil, which is a thin oil with a vibrant citrus smell. The oil, which is cold-extracted in Italy, is used to treat both fatigue and insomnia. Scientific research has shown the oil to have intriguing chemical properties.

Antioxidant Properties: Clementine oil contains anthocyanins, chemicals known to have antioxidant properties, notes Giuseppe Ruberto, et al., in their research article, "Essential Oil of Two New Pigmented Citrus Hybrids: Citrus Clementina --- Citrus Sinensis." Writing in the Journal of Agricultural Food Chemistry in February, 1997, the Italian research team noted that the main ingredient in clementine oil is limonene. According to Jidong Sun, Ph.D., writing in the September 2007 edition of the Alternative Medicine Review, limonene can be used to treat gallstones, heartburn and gastroesophageal reflux (GERD) and has chemopreventive properties for many types of cancer.

Antifungal Properties: Clementine oil has antifungal properties which are visible using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS), notes Ana Ortuco, et al., in their research paper, "Antifungal Properties of Polymethoxylated Flavones in Citrus sp." The Italian research team, presenting at the 2nd International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry (ECSOC-2) in 1998, studied the effects of clementine oil on several fungal cultures. They found that the oil inhibited 47 percent of the fungi Geotrichum, 72 percent of fungi Phytophthora citrophthora and 100 percent of Pencillium digitatum.

Complex Smell: Nearly 50 odorants, chemical compounds that emit odors, are present in clementine oil, according to researchers from Pennsylvania State University. After subjecting the oil to a battery of tests including gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), researchers concluded that no single odorant in the oil was responsible for its characteristic smell. The team, led by Mary G. Chisholm, published their findings online in the Flavor and Fragrance Journal as "Characterization of the Major Odorants Found in the Peel Oil of Citrus Reticulata Blanco cv. Clementine Using Gas Chromatography-Olfactometry," July, 2003.

Common Uses: Clementine essential oil is well known for its ability to revitalize, while at the same time, balance when it comes to combating insomnia.

Precautions: Sweet clementine Oil is phototoxic, increasing one's susceptibility to the impact of the sun's rays. Individuals using the oil should refrain from direct sun exposure. Moreover, pregnant women should avoid using the oil, due to concerns over unknown side effects.
