Sweet, lemon like, fresh top notes with warm, floral and balsamic undertones. The Happy Oil, that brings sunshine and happiness

Bergamot Essential Oil

The Bergamot tree is a native of Southern Italy and produces small inedible (due to the sourness) fruits. The fruits ripen from Green to Yellow. Bergamot is seen as the king of all essential oils, being used in skin care products and perfumes for decades.

Characteristics of Bergamot Essential Oil

A sweet and lemony fresh top note with a warm, floral and balsamic undertone. A favourite with aromatherapists and oil burners for the uplifting and fresh scent and positive mind attributes.

Bergamot is the classic oil found in Early grey tea, which gives Earl Grey its distinctive flavour and therapeutic effects.

Common Uses of Bergamot Essential Oil

Bergamot is found in skincare products and is popular in colognes and perfume.

Skin

Bergamot oil is traditionally used in spot treatments for pimples, cysts and blackheads. The cicatrizant in Bergamot essential oil helps heal scars and other marks on the skin, helping the skin remain youthful.

Hair

The delicate scent is perfect for hair products and for use in soothing sore scalps.

Mind

Bergamot is a feel good oil. It is often used with stress and anxiety, the oil being naturally uplifting. A small study in Japan in 2015 showed it is beneficial with anxiety and fatigue.
 
Another study in 2011 stated that Bergamot oil contains ingredients such as alpha-pinene and limonene that are therapeutic and stimulating. They generate a feeling of calmness and make you more relaxed.
 
Body
 
The high linalool content can help ease pain and inflammation. Research at the University of Calabria concluded that Bergamot essential oil helps reduce the feeling of pain in the body. It stimulates the secretion of certain hormones which lessen the sensitivity of nerves to pain.
 
The natural compounds in Bergamot ensure skin freshness, making it useful in deodorant formulations.
 
Aroma
 
A classic aromatherapy scent that is one of the key ingredients in Eau de Cologne. You will find Bergamot in many of the biggest aftershaves and perfumes.

Precautions when using Bergamot Essential Oil

The Bergamot Essential we sell at Naturallythinking has the Bergapetene removed for safety (this is the FCF declaration in the name) and therefore it is safe for use in sunlight, although we do not recommend using in direct sunlight.

Bergamot can has a calming, but euphoric effect on the senses and therefore we do not recommend burning when consuming alcohol.

Bergamot can irritate very sensitive skin.

Never use during pregnancy.
