Relaxing and calming

Relaxing and uplifting Bergamot essential oil is a beautiful citrusy-sweet oil which can help boost the immune system.  When it is vaporised, Bergamot creates a calming ambience and is one of the most frequently used oils to treat psychological issues

, such as depression brought on by stress.

Originating from tropical Asia, historically Bergamot oil is most popular in Italy, where today the oil is almost exclusively produced.  The Bergamot tree is named after Bergamo in Northern Italy – a small town where the fruits of the tree were first cultivated.  Bergamot oil is expressed from the peel of whole citrus fruits, which are rasped so oils glands break and release the citrusy-sweet oil.  


In skincare, Bergamot is a popular choice for its superb antibacterial and antiseptic properties - helping clear and protect skin by reducing the bacteria that causes breakouts and acne.

Bergamot essential oil can also stop bacteria from reacting with your skin and causing body odour, which is why this refreshing oil is often used in deodorants.

It is important to always carry out a patch test before using any natural ingredients you haven’t used before. Just apply a small amount of the blend to the inside on your elbow and keep an eye on the area over the next 24 hours.

If any irritation does occur rinse the area with cool water. If you have blended a few essential oils together you may need to test each one individually to find out which is causing your skin to react.
