Bergamot essential oil has a sweet, citrus-y scent. Even though you may not have heard of Bergamot, you've probably heard of Earl Gray tea which is flavored with Bergamot oil. The essential oil is cold-pressed from the rind of the fruit and it's three highest constituents are limonene, linalyl acetate and linalool.
Usage + Recipes
Applied topically, Bergamot essential oil may soothe sore muscles and can reduce the appearance of blemishes. Diffusing Bergamot can reduce feelings of anxiety, can uplift spirits, and help promote proper circulation.
Bergamot is great to diffuse at night to encourage a restful night of sleep. It can also aid your digestive system when taken internally (you'll want to use Bergamot Vitality for that).
Bergamot essential oil is very photosensitizing (can cause irritation if you apply Grapefruit topically and the application area is exposed to the sun). So be sure that if you apply Bergamot topically you wait at least 24 hours before exposing the applied area to sunlight.
