But, before we dig into all of that, I want to make sure you know about my new and amazing Bible Verse Memory Cards for girls!

That they become written on your daughter’s heart as she grows. That she develops a deep knowing of who God is, how He works, what matters to Him, and that she knows who she is in Him from the start.

Like many other beautiful things in life, mandarins come in colorful shades. Red, Yellow, and Green Mandarin essential oils all come from the same fruit; they’re simply produced during different times of the ripening process. You got it, just like with peppers, the color depends on when these citrus fruits are picked during their growth process. (Is this a lightbulb moment for you, too?)
On the scale of ripe to unripe, we start with Red Mandarin, which comes from the peel of a perfectly ripened fruit in all its red or orange glory. Next, Yellow Mandarin is extracted from the peel of the fruit when it is partially ripe. They all have a similar chemistry but they have their own unique properties too based on where they are in their stage of ripening. The one that I want to spotlight today is Green Mandarin. This oil is extracted from the fully UNRIPE green fruit.
Don’t let the word “unripe” leave a bad taste in your mouth, because the essential oil these cold-pressed green peels give birth to is decidedly sweet and refreshing!
Green Mandarin supports a bright, energizing environment, and like all citrus oils, it cleanses surfaces wherever it goes. One of my favorite diffuser blends combines Green Mandarin with Douglas Fir, White Grapefruit, and Siberian Fir. So yummy and refreshing!
3 drops Green Mandarin
3 drops Douglas Fir
2 drops White Grapefruit
2 drops Siberian Fir
Once you soak up the aroma of this blend, you’ll figure out quickly that citrus and fir are a match made in heaven. Together they refresh, energize, and balance. In addition to the fir oils, Green Mandarin also pairs gorgeously with Basil, Lavender, Sandalwood, and Spearmint. Any combination you arrive at is sure to be soothing and uplifting with these oils in the mix! You cannot go wrong with Green Mandarin!
Some Additional Usage Tips:
And here’s the most important thing about Green Mandarin. It’s a citrus oil – duh, right? Did you know that citrus oils work to reduce inflammation daily because they are alkaline? They can. They are. And your inflammation just got its eviction notice! Adding 3-5 drops daily to your water is a great place to start.
Use glass containers. Essential oils will breakdown petrochemicals in plastic and styrofoam.
And start with 1 drop per 16 oz of water. Citrus oils help with cleaning, detoxifying, + filtering so our elimination pathways can do their work. We want our body’s waste system to be working properly and not holding onto toxins. Think of your citrus oils as your dish soap. After a meal, you clean the dishes, yes? If you just rinse them w/ water, that won’t cut grease + grime. But if you add a squirt of dish soap + together w/ the water, it cuts the grease. Likewise, without enough citrus oil, our body can’t cut the nasty gunky funky toxicity hanging out so it can head right for our elimination pathways.
When the waste, inflammation, acid build-up, + excess material doesn’t get eliminated, it gets reabsorbed by the body + leads to inflammation. No thank you! Get it gone! Moreso than ever, as we lean into prevention and reducing inflammation, citrus oil play an essential role.
Okay, so we saved one of the best parts of the story of Green Mandarin for last, just to reward you for listening this far! You probably already know that the mandarin is a citrus tree with fragrant white flowers that mature into small, juicy oranges. But did you know that Green Mandarin is one of the most eco-friendly essential oils? Now, my disclaimer is that not all essential oil companies source in this way. But with the company that I love, they work with the farmers in Brazil who cultivate their citrus groves to source this oil and they know the importance of the thinning process of their mandarin trees. By plucking or clipping more than half of the trees’ young, unripe fruits – aka the Green Mandarins, the farmers prepare the trees to yield their maximum harvest of healthy, mature fruits later on (enter Red Mandarin).
Before Green Mandarin essential oil came to the market through this company, this dramatic pruning process resulted in a carpet of small, unripe green fruits decomposing on the ground. 60-70% of this young, unripened fruit is removed during the thinning process for the Red Mandarin trees. And the green mandarins would just lay there on the ground and go to waste. From what is usually discarded and left to decompose, is now used to create a beautiful essential oil from instead!
NOW, these young fruits go to good use in the creation of their very own chemically unique essential oil, valuable and desirable in its own right. Green Mandarin is an underdog story of the eco-friendly variety if ever there was one!
Progressing stages of maturity are a part of life. Good thing there’s a good company out there that knows how to get the most out of each stage of the ripening process by using those small green citrus gems to make Green Mandarin essential oil. This oil reminds us to glean all we can from whatever unique stage of growth we’re currently in, and to hang in there through the painful pruning process.
This reminds me of John 15 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. 2 He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful. 3 You are already clean because of the word I have spoken to you. 4 Remain in me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. 6 If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned. 7 If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you. 8 This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.
