Bergamot

Citrus bergamia

Bergamot from Aromatics

Bergamot

Citrus bergamia

Description

Bergamot is a powerful antispasmodic and can be effective in reducing and eliminating abdominal cramps and the occasional spastic coughing. Bergamot is also an effective aid for healthy digestion and great for jumpy legs. Successfully used as a mood enhancement. Possessing a bright aroma, Bergamot is a beautiful addition to blends.

Bergamot is fantastic as an ingredient in massage oils as it helps to reduce tension and soothe painfully tight muscles. Bergamot may help to inhibit the growth of viruses associated with daily life and improve the immune system.

A valuable oil used to support emotional health and well-being. Try using Bergamot in a diffuser, especially when feeling blue, as it adds a light, uplifting, and lovely aroma to the room.

Check out the blog post from a trip to Italy to see Bergamot being produced.

This Bergamot from our distiller in Italy has a fresh lemony aroma. GC report posted soon!

Safety + Shelf Life

Phototoxic - Avoid direct sunlight or sun beds for 12-24 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 oz 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.

When dealing with a phototoxic burn per Robert Tisserand:  "The initial (acute) reaction is very much like a severe burn, and so can be treated as such with hydrosols etc. The discoloration is often long-term. It will typically fade eventually, but could be years. There are no treatments that I know of, but maybe there are... It's due to melanocytes migrating up into the epidermis, so does not fade like a normal tan."

The suggested shelf life is 3-4 years.
