Bergamot - Citrus bergamia (Furocoumarins Free, Bergapten Free)

Bergamot is familiar as the flavouring in Earl Grey tea. It is anti-bacterial, deodorising, refreshing, and soothing which makes it excellent for body skincare preparations to ensure healthy and vital skin. Bergamot Essential Oil has a fresh, citrus and slightly spicy aroma and is powerfully refreshing and invigorating. It also helps to maintain a balanced mood and is good for confidence building as it uplifts the spirit and emotions. Bergamot can be useful as an antiseptic for the urinary tract and in cases of cystitis. It has an inhibiting effect on certain viruses, in particular Herpes simplex-1 which causes cold sores. It can also reduce the pain of shingles and ease chicken pox in small children.

Uses

Use Bergamot in a vaporizer to disperse unpleasant odours and cigarette smoke. Used in a steam based diffuser, it has an inhibiting effect on certain viruses, in particular Herpes simplex-1 which causes cold sores. A couple of drops of Bergamot oil in an oil burner is refreshing and invigorating. Dilute to 1% or less in a carrier oil for body skincare preparations to ensure healthy and vital skin and as a massage for PMT.
