Engage in good: good health, a good mood, and good work around the world with dōTERRA®’s Summer Citrus Duo. If Red and Yellow Mandarin have paired up in your market to support the Healing Hands Foundation®, with every cent from their sales this month applied as a donation to the foundation, then lean in to learn what this means! With a mission to empower people worldwide to make positive sustainable change, the Healing Hands Foundation encompasses initiatives such as disaster relief, clean water and sanitation, anti-human trafficking, and empowering women while supporting children. So if your market is the lucky one in which this promotion is applicable, you have the chance to lend a healing hand by purchasing a sweet duo of essential oils! Just what you will do with these citrus beauties? The choice is yours, and so are these ideas.

Spice up your breakfast routine with Red Mandarin in a colorful, flavorful parfait. Mix one or two drops into your plain or fruit-flavored yogurt, then layer attractively with some healthy granola, chia seeds, and fruit slices. Double the amount to share with a friend, and enjoy a breakfast bursting with citrus flavor, courtesy of the Summer Citrus Duo! Come dinnertime, flavor up your favorite basic oven-baked chicken breast recipe by combining 5-10 drops of Red Mandarin essential oil with a tablespoon of olive oil, then brushing the mixture over chicken after baking.

The mandarin is a citrus tree with fragrant white flowers that mature into small, juicy oranges. Lest the multicolor modifiers puzzle you, Red, Yellow, and Green Mandarin essential oils all come from the same fruit. They’re simply produced during different times of the ripening process, so the oil’s name depends on when the citrus fruits are picked. Red Mandarin comes from the peel of a perfectly ripened fruit, resplendent with red or orange glory, while Yellow Mandarin is extracted from the peel of the partially ripe fruit. Green Mandarin, which is not included in the Summer Citrus Duo, is extracted from the fully unripe fruit and comes with its own unique backstory. Green Mandarin is typically available as a single oil, so if your market is not currently promoting the fabulous red and yellow duo, you can still go for the green variety!

Sweet, purifying Red Mandarin and its uplifting Yellow sidekick are a blast to incorporate into mealtime, where they can pack their powerful punch. This bright Summer Citrus Duo Dressing is totally free of unnecessary calories and preservatives, and will take your salad to the next level! You’ll need:

  • 1/2 tsp honey
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp sherry vinegar
  • 1 drop each Red and Yellow Mandarin essential oils
  • 1/4 tsp freshly chopped tarragon or a pinch dried
  • lime or lemon juice, to taste

Whisk together honey, olive oil, vinegar, Red and Yellow Mandarin oils, and tarragon until well combined. Add lime or lemon juice to taste. Adjust seasoning as needed before drizzling over salad.

Because the Summer Citrus Duo is only available for a limited time, you’ll want to take hold of it the same way you hold onto those last few gorgeous days of summer, savoring every moment. Use this opportunity to get your exclusive Red and Yellow Mandarin while they last!
