it seems that Mandarin Moon has many benefits when it comes to aromatherapy   You see there are 3 ingredients that are present to create a vibrant and energetic response.  First being citrus or an Orange, Mandarin - Although the botanical differences between mandarin and tangerine are slight, the oils expressed from each differ in aroma and are not considered interchangeable in aromatherapy. The floral, neroli-like undertones of mandarin are evocative and sensual. Mandarin is used in combination with other citrus oils in colognes and fantasy-type perfumes. Aromatherapy benefits: uplifting, cheering, sensual.  Then you add Ginger - Ginger oil has a warm, spicy-woody odor. It blends well with spice and citrus oils. Aromatherapy benefits: warming, strengthening, anchoring. And to top it off as an under note to the scent is Anise - The oil of anise and star anise are often used and sold interchangeably because they are similar in aroma and chemical make-up. Although this is the first time I hear of Anise, I found that the Aromatherapy benefits: cheering, mildly euphoric.  hmmm  Great for a not hot bath!
