Highly used in perfumes and lotions, the Bergamot Orange originates in Southeast Asia but has become famous in Italy's orchards for its prized aroma. Bergamot Essential Oil is made by cold pressing the Bergamot rinds, producing a fresh citrus scent with a slightly floral undertone. Historically used for supporting digestion and bringing a sense of calm, it also has been known for its cleansing powers, similar to other citrus fruits.
Bergamot is also very well known for its pairing with Black Tea to make Earl Grey Tea, a soothing and velvety sipping tea. In addition, it pairs well with Clary Sage, Frankincense, Black Pepper, Cypress, Geranium, Sandalwood, Orange, Rosemary, and all citrus oils.
Topical: When combined with a carrier oil, Bergamot can be massaged over the abdomen to calm a stormy tummy. Combine with your favorite essential oils and then dilute with your favorite carrier oil to create a customized, one of a kind perfume. Topical application should be used at a 0.4% concentration of Bergamot when mixed with a carrier oil. (To achieve, please mix 4 drops of Bergamot with 2 ounces of a carrier oil).
Diffusing: Bergamot can be diffused by itself or added to your favorite blend for an uplifting and cheering blend, bringing joy to the darkest day.
Cleaning: Add a drop of Bergamot to your laundry to add a little bit of freshness. Or mix ten drops of Bergamot with 1/4 cup of vinegar and add to a cup of water for a cleansing spray.
