Botanical Name: Citrus bergamia
Aromatic Summary / Note / Strength of Aroma. It’s prized for its soothing scent, spicy taste, and wide range of uses.
Product Abstract: The extract of Bergemot oil is from the rinds of citrus fruit that grow on bergamot orange trees. If you’re a fan of Earl Grey tea, you’re already enjoying the distinctive taste of bergamot, used to flavor it. The earliest roots of the bergamot tree can be traced to Southeast Asia. It currently grows in many parts of the world, but achieved its prominence and name in the town of Bergamo in southern Italy.
Cautions: Bergamot essential oil should not be used full strength directly on skin. It can be mixed with a carrier oil, such as coconut oil or mineral oil, and used as a skin softener. Bergamot oil can also be mixed with water vapor and used as an aromatherapy treatment. Do not swallow essential oils.
