Bergamot Calabrian Citrus Bergamia - Italy
Essential Oil - 15mL
This essential oil is cold pressed from the rind of the fruit and is pale green in colour. Since the bergamot tree is a hybrid of lemon and orange trees, the essential oil maintains both these components. However, it is a complex citrus with spice and floral tones, making this a nice oil for use on its own. It is an uplifting and relaxing scent that can be enjoyed by almost everyone. Bergamot blends well with most other essential oils: Himalayan Cedarwood, Geranium, Lavender, Lemon, Lime, Neroli, Chamomile, Coriander, & Ylang Ylang I. Bergamot oil has been used as an antiseptic, fever-reducer, appetite stimulant, cramp reliever and as a digestive stimulant. Bergamot essential oil is used in Earl Grey tea to give it its distinct flavour. Do not apply this oil to the skin in concentrations greater than 0.5-1% to avoid discolouration of the skin when exposed to the sun.
