Bergamot Essential OilRelieve Stress & Anxiety

Bergamot Essential Oil (Citrus bergamia) has the fresh, sweet, citrus scent that is familiar to many as the flavoring in Earl Grey Tea. Uplifting and relaxing, Bergamot is good for building confidence and enhancing your mood. It has a long history of use for oily and troubled skin. 

Historical Data: It is believed that Christopher Columbus brought bergamot to Bergamo in Northern Italy from the Canaary Islands. A mainstay in traditional Italian medicine, bergamot has been used in the Middle East for hundreds of years for skin conditions associated with an oily complexion. Bergamot is responsible for the distinctive flavor of the renowned Earl Grey Tea, and was used in the first genuine eau de cologne.

During the Napoleonic times, it was trendy to use bergamot as a cologne and perfume and is still dominantly used by the perfume industry in it's "deterpenized" form.

When companies "deterpenize" Bergamot Essential Oil, they take out the furanocoumarins, that which makes the oil photosensitive and creates skin reactions. But depending on the process the company uses, if may also disrupt the quality of the oil, especially when chemicals are used.
