Surround yourself with the bright and sunny fragrances of Bergamot Essential Oil. This intriguing citrus fruit is a cross between a lemon and an orange and once ripened, the oil is extracted from its rinds using cold-pressing methods. Known as “the prince of citrus” the aroma of the Bergamot fruit can be described as uplifting and refreshing, with a slightly floral and herbal undertone.
Historically, Bergamot Essential Oil was used in Italian folk medicine as an antiseptic and in Ayurvedic medicine to soothe acne, and sores, and reduce fever, and compulsive behaviors. It has been a popular choice among perfumeries for decades due to its complex fragrance profile and natural ability to uplift the mood.
Bergamot Essential Oil has many beneficial properties and when inhaled, can even send signals to the brain and nervous system to release neuron messengers like serotonin. Resulting in a feeling of being refreshed and renewed. Due to its high citrus content, Bergamot can be used as a natural and non-toxic perfume or air freshener, working to deodorize and neutralize unpleasant odors.
