Mandarin Oil 5 Fold is produced in central Europe from green mandarins that have been sustainably harvested prior to ripening.
Mandarin Oil 5 Fold offers a beautiful subtle Mandarin note that benefits from the de-waxing process it is put through during the cold pressing manufacturing process.
A simple way to explain why they select and produce Mandarin Oil Green 5 Fold is if you think of the mandarin tree with early ripening fruit. The fruits are therefore green in colour and through a selection process they choose a range of quality mandarins and those that are im-perfect or mis-shapen that would not be used when the fruit is ripe. This operation thins the trees for quality fruit in season.
At this stage the green coloured mandarin has a different natural chemistry to that of the yellow and red fruits which will develop in the later months of ripening. As an example the green variant contains less natural sugars which results in a far sharper aroma compared to the red variant.
The aroma of green mandarin is bright, fresh, sweet, of mandarin fruits, with a green citrus tang. “The oil is cold pressed from the green unripe peel, green in colour and of a pourable viscosity. Imparts a refreshing effect within floral bouquets, and is great for simple citrus accords, pairing well with citrus naturals and vetiver oils and a good material for building earthy green notes.”
To maintain your special oil it is best kept below 30c or even in the fridge if you are living in a hot climate to hold it’s sweetness.
This 5 Fold Mandarin oil does not come with a certificate of consumption so keep the bottle out of the reach of children as the temptation to drink this sweet oil would be high for a small child.
