Bergamot essential oil is a favourite amongst aromatherapists and lovers of pure essential oils as it encompasses the citrusy warmth of the orange while emitting underlying tones that are akin to the most popular essential oil – lavender.
Bergamot can be used as incense or in a vaporizer. It can also be diluted with bath water or blended with massage oils.
Bergamot is used to treat stress, depression, anxiety, anorexia, and a number of infections including skin infections like psoriasis and eczema. It is used to stimulate the liver, digestive system and spleen.
If applied directly to the skin in its pure form, Bergamot can potentially burn the skin especially in sunlight. We would advise to stay out of the sun when using this oil.
