It is often used for hiccups and to soothe indigestion. It may also support the liver. Like all citrus oils, mandarin is photosensitizing, which means that topical use may cause skin to bum more quickly and more deeply in sunlight or from tanning beds.
High-quality carrier oils turn rancid very quickly and should be stored in the refrigerator. You can find flax seed oil in the refrigerated section of your health food store. If you cannot locate the rose hip seed oil or hazelnut oil, the recipe will still be effective. Instead, increase the base oil to 1 1/2
