Bergamot Essential Oil Properties & Uses
Bergamot essential oils should be in any aromatherapists oil selection with great properties and a beautiful scent. It is one of the most widely used oils because of both the effects and the light, citrus scent it brings to any blend.
We recommend using the FCF version of Bergamot Essential Oil as it is not phototoxic or photosensitive, unlike the unmodified version. It is equally as good for skin conditions and better in some cases.
