"Tangerine, Tangerine, Living reflection from a dream;
I was her love, she was my queen, and now a thousand years between."
~ Led Zeppelin
"Tangerine oil is much imitated. Children and pregnant women usually love this fragrance, but the young at heart also find it enjoyable. Tangerine helps ease tension, fear, sadness, irritability, and sleeplessness. For a relaxing bath, mix tangerine with honey oil, sandalwood, bergamot, tonka bean, or coriander."
