  • Mandarin is playful. 
    Turn your accountant of a partner into a primary school assistant. Get him/her out of the armchair, throw the daily newspaper away and let him/her play with the kids on the ground. Ehm... do not forget to diffuse some mandarin prior to that...! 
  • Overactive mind but night approaches? 
    A few drops of Mandarin in a spoonful of honey should do the trick. Mix the oil and the honey well, then use it to flavour a cup of hot water. Take your time to smell it at the same time before you drink it up. Now, back to bed, lights off, night night! 
  • For culinary aspects, please take a look at the Lemon. 
Mandarin tree is part of the family of rutaceae. A kind of citrus like Lemon, Orange or Grapefruit.
Mandarins have been given different value through the times... For example, its name: mandarin, proves that it used to be very valuable. Indeed, the Mandarin had the exclusive right to eat mandarins. The "poor" and "simple people" were only allowed to eat oranges. However, its commercial aura is fading nowadays. It is often replaced by its seedless son: the Tangerine (which is a crossed species between mandarin and orange).
Mandarin has seeds and about 20 segments. Its success may well have been due to its easy use. It peels off easily by hand and its segments go off without splitting open.
In Europe, it is still associated with Saint Nicholas, given to children with chocolate and peanuts. However, there again, its aura tends to fade away. Hard to compete with Gametendos, Xstations, Super playboxes etc. Clearly not botanical crosses, and clearly more harmful to (health and) parents' wallets!
The tree itself looks like any other citrus tree. A few spikes, however little and thin. And fruit-bearing, however fragile-looking. And it is harvested in December.
What about Yellow, Green or Red Mandarin? 
Everybody wonders if there is any difference between the 3. Well, not really. They are the exact same species but the difference is the time they were harvested: the maturity of the fruit. A red mandarin is ripe, a yellow one is half-ripe, and a green one is ... green! 
They are all fine to use, and you are free to prefer one or the other!
