Bergamot

Citrus bergamia

Description

Our organically crafted bergamot essential oil is cold pressed from the fresh fruit rind of this citrus fruit cultivated on the Southern Italian coast.

The tart, green citrus rind of this fruit is transformed into a sweet, lemony, herbaceous essential oil that is one of the finest choices for reducing unwanted muscle spasms. It is also highly desired when looking to lift a cloud of depression or when wanting to reduce pain and inflammation. It is cooling and can help lower uninvited bacteria and fungus. One of our favorite ways to use this essential oil is in an inhaler blend for reducing stress as it is relaxing, emotionally uplifting, and restorative.

Safety + Shelf Life

Phototoxic - Avoid direct sunlight or tanning beds for up to 18 hours after applying Bergamot to the skin. Bergamot must not be applied to the skin undiluted. Serious skin burning or damage can occur if Bergamot is applied and the skin is exposed to the sun or a tanning booth. It may be used safely (no phototoxic response) on the skin in a blend at no more than 0.4% (approx. 1-2 drops per 1 oz/30 ml of carrier). If you are using the oil on an area of your skin that has no exposure to the sun or UV light, then there is no safety concern.

If oxidized, Bergamot essential oil may cause skin irritation or sensitization due to the high limonene content.

The suggested shelf life is 4 years.
