Therapeutic Benefits

Tangerine Essential Oil brings an energy of childlike playfulness.
It contains one of the highest Limonene contents of the citrus oils (80-99%), which provides its energizing and vitalizing effects.
Cinnamon Essential Oil is a sultry, seductive aroma with a reputation for enticing intimacy.
It helps fight cold and flu bugs with the immunostimulant Eugenol (1-10%). It also contains the constituent Cinnamaldehyde (45-80%), which has been shown to help balance blood sugar.
