The History of Clementine


In ancient times Clementine's were referred to as the crown jewels of the mandarin family. Some say Clementine's discovery was credited to Father Clement Rodier in Algeria in the late 1800s when a botanist crossed a sweet and mandarin orange. This coupling resulted in a seedless mandarin with a looser skin that was easier to peel. Others place its roots centuries ago in Italy or China.


It eventually found popularity in the U.S. in the 1900s and is still grown in California today. Clementines are also known as “Christmas Oranges” because their growing season only occurs between November and January, and they were traditionally given as presents during the holiday season.


Clementine essential oil is made from the peel of the fruit. They are sweeter, juicier and less acidic than oranges. The bright yellow oil is extracted through a cold pressed method. Today, it has gained massive popularity in skincare for its anti-ageing benefits and ability to support healthy skin.

Clementine in Numbers




Clementine oil scores a big 10/10 when it comes to price. A 10ml bottle will only cost you £1.50, and a whole kilogram works out to be £28.96! It is excellent value for money and smells divine.





Clementine has a light, crisp, refreshing citrus aroma. Its smell is as complex and multi-layered as a good Red Mandarin, but sweeter. It possesses the sweetness of Orange Sweet or Tangerine, with almost a hint of floral to it.




Clementine has a gentle and uplifting scent. It is not too overpowering and is frequently blended with other essential oils because of this.





Stimulates collagen production


Promotes a better and more restful sleep


Promotes skin recovery and healing


Protects against free radical damage and signs of ageing


Aids in relieving stress, uplifting the mood, and enhancing mental clarity.






Clementine isn't the most popular oil, but its demand is ever increasing. Most instead use it's nemesis Orange Sweet, but I believe Clementine will one day stand on its own two feet and become the king of the essential oil world. It has a range of uses and smells delightful.
