If you’re looking to learn about different essential oils, then you’re in the right place! Read below to find out more about Bergamot essential oil and its many wonders.
With its origins in Italy, Citrus bergamia is cold pressed from its peel to create this fresh and sweet oil. Bergamot is a top note oil that combines well with Black Pepper, Clary Sage, Cypress, Frankincense, Geranium, Jasmine, Mandarin, Nutmeg, Orange, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Vetiver, and Ylang Ylang.
Did you know that Bergamot is a main ingredient in one of the world’s most popular teas? Earl Grey. It is no wonder, as this oil is stimulating and helps promotes positivity and contentment, while also aiding digestion. If you’re looking for a soothing bath blend that also contains disinfecting and antibiotic properties, Bergamot is a great addition. I recommend adding a few drops (or you can use our pre-formulated Anxious Blend) to homemade bath salts or bath bombs (try our Lemon Bergamot Bath Bomb), as this utilizes its pain relieving properties too. Additionally, the distinct and pleasant aroma of Bergamot makes it wonderful to include in homemade perfumes and deodorants, especially when combined with deep and grounding oils like Sandalwood and Vetiver.
