Scientific Name: Citrus bergamia
While its name is reminiscent of an exotic island resort for newly weds, Bergamot Essential Oil is actually the extract of Italy’s Bergamot fruit. With an aroma that’s both sweet and slightly fruity, and said to give an uplifting and relaxed feeling, it should come as no surprise that it’s a fairly common ingredient found in perfumes and colognes. Furthering its bodily benefits, many believe that when added to a bath or dropped into massage oil it can help with stress and anxiety, seasonal affected disorder, depression, PMS, and cold and flu symptoms.
Nourishing for the skin as well, it can be mixed into a base cream to potentially combat oily skin, scars and acne marks, cold sores and a host of other ailments. Ideal for blending with additional skin-friendly oils such as Nutmeg, Orange and Rosemary, Bergamot Essential Oil is sure to leave you feeling satisfied from the outside, in.
Bergamot essential oil blends well with Nutmeg, Orange, and Rosemary essential oils. Buy yours from Herb Affair today, and see what it can do for you.
