An all-in-one oil, Green Mandarin provides digestion support, soothes muscle spasms and respiratory support on top of being a great, natural cleaner. Red Mandarin is sweeter and more citrusy than Green Mandarin. Like Green Mandarin, it offers digestion support and also immune support and stress relief. Both oils are quite similar and can be used interchangeably.
