Bergamot is the most delicate of the citrus plants, requiring special climate and soil in order to thrive. Italians have used Bergamot for years for its calming aroma and to soothe and makes skin feel fresher and smoother. 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 to the emotions, making it ideal for diffusion. It is also clarifying and cleansing for the skin while having a calming effect.
HOW TO USE:
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of choice.
Food additive use: Add 1 or 2 drops to food.
Topical use: Apply one to two drops to desired area. Dilute with a carrier oil to minimize any skin sensitivity. See additional precautions below.
Bergamot oil is a unique citrus oil. It has high concentrations of the uplifting monoterpene limonene like other citrus, but also contains the calming monoterpene ester linalyl acetate (which gives relaxing qualities to Lavender, Clary Sage, and Petitgrain). Because of this, Bergamot oil is an ideal oil to use to help with anxious and sad feelings, or for times when tension is high. Diffuse Bergamot oil to reduce feelings of negativity, or to encourage self-confidence. When stress levels are high, diffuse Bergamot oil with Grapefruit and Douglas Fir.
