Clementine

Citrus Clementina

ūüĆŅ conventional or organic available

The Clementine is a citrus hybrid of mandarin and sweet orange.

Clementine Essential Oil is extracted from fruit peel. Oil content in peel varies from 0.3 to 0.9%.

Like other citrus oils, Clementine is rich in the cleansing chemical component Limonene.

In Ancient times Clementines were referred to as the ‚Äúcrown jewel‚ÄĚ of the Mandarin family. The clergyman Pierre Clement is credited with crossing a Mandarin and an Orange. This coupling resulted in a seedless mandarin with loose skin and a smooth and shiny appearance.

Clementine is another variety of mandarin like Tangerine. It is sweet and easy to peel. It is grown commercially in Algeria, China, Spain, Turkey, Morocco, Brazil, Egypt, the United States, Iran and Argentina.
