Just the sound of Bergamot essential oil brings about thoughts of the Italian coastline, clothes hanging out to dry, and wine and fruits spritzing the air. Bergamot essential oil is full of beautiful, light citrus notes. It is very complimentary to orange or lemon oils, and works great in face creams and serums, body washes, scrubs, and natural cleaning solutions. When bergamot is added to black tea, that tea becomes Earl Gray tea!
Bergamot oil is composed of alpha-pinene, alpha bergapten, alpha-terpineol, limonene, linalool, linalyl acetate, nerol, neryl acetate, beta bisabolene, geraniol, geraniol acetate and myrcene.
Bergamot can be used in products to help:
- Increase circulation (think anti-aging with increased blood flow and collagen stimulation)
- Anti-fungal and would healing salves, balms or sprays
- Deodorants- try blending with some organic shea butter, organic coconut oil, white beeswax beads, and organic argan oil to make a refreshing deodorant alternative
- Perfumes- blend with clary sage, frankincense, sandalwood, orange, or rosemary and create either a solid perfume or a spray on. Add this blend to any body lotion, soap bar or body wash and leave your skin and your bathroom smelling fresh.
Some bergamot varieties do contain bergapten, which means it can trigger skincare sensitives when exposed to sunlight. Our version is bergaptene free, so there is no contraindications with sun exposure. Always store pure bergamot essential oil in dark containers and away from direct sunlight.
