Bergamot Organic Essential Oil
Approved by the Soil Association.
Light citrus orange, delicate, refreshing, yellowish green colour
Expressed from the peel, Bergamot has a sweet fruity, citrus aroma and is clear in colour. A really special, rounded, citrus aroma, Bergamot is the perfect oil to help lift that Monday-morning feeling any day of the week! Try adding 20 drops to a bottle of unfragranced shower gel to give you get up and go in the mornings. Bergamot is strongly anti-septic, use in a burner to cleanse and uplift a room's atmosphere. Experiment by blending with the other citrus oils, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Lavender or Clary Sage. Expressed from the peel of the Bergamot fruit, the bergaptene content of this oil causes photosensitivity in sunlight. It is recommended for use in massage only by qualified aromatherapists but is ideal for the home oil burner/diffuser. Absolute Aromas also stocks a bergaptene-free Bergamot, known as Bergamot FCF, which is safer for use on the skin.
