What is Bergamot?
Bergamot essential oil is extracted through pressing of the rind of the fruit. It’s a citrus fruit that is often described as a cross between an orange and a lime. It has a beautiful fragrance and is by far one of my very favorite essential oils.
This fruit typically grows in the Mediterranean and requires just the right environment to thrive. Bergamot fruit has traditionally been used in that area to promote feelings of calmness and to help purify the skin.
This oil can be used aromatically, topically and internally. As with all citrus oils, you should avoid direct sunlight or UV light for 72 hours after using topically, as the chemical makeup of the oil will increase the chances of sunburn.
