Bergamot Breakdown

Citrus Bergamia

Bergamot is an incredibly unique oil. Most ubiquitous in it's aromatic use, this oil takes on a citrus tone in some blends, and a richer tone in others. Uplifting or calming depending on the usage, this oil is a must have for anyone who loves the aromatic aspect of oil usage.

Bergamot is the most delicate of the citrus plants, requiring special climate and soil in order to thrive. Italians have used Bergamot for years to reduce feelings of stress and to soothe and rejuvenate skin. In Greece, the unripe fruits are used as sweetmeats, eaten by the spoonful as a dessert or with coffee. Bergamot is unique among citrus oils due to its ability to be both uplifting and calming, making it ideal to help with anxious and sad feelings. It is also purifying and cleansing for the skin while having a calming effect.

Internal use: Dilute one drop in 4 fl. oz. of liquid.
