The health benefits of bergamot essential oil can be attributed to its properties as a deodorant, vulnerary (healing of wounds), vermifuge (destroys parasites), antibiotic, antiseptic, antispasmodic, sedative, analgesic, antidepressant, disinfectant, febrifuge (fever reducer), and a digestive substance. *

Bergamot is a citrus fruit whose rind is used for extracting bergamot essential oil. It is a tropical plant but also manages to thrive in Europe.


Its potent aroma makes it a popular ingredient in many perfumes, and it is often used as the “top note”.


Fun fact - bergamot essential oil is a key ingredient in black tea - also known as Earl Gray tea.

Bergamot essential oil is a tonic, which means it "tones up" the respiratory, digestive, circulatory, nervous and excretory system, as well as the skin and muscles. It is also used in vaporizers to relieve congestion and respiratory issues. It's particularly effective for coughs and colds.

Bergamot oil can heighten your vulnerability to sun damage, so it is recommended to keep the areas in which it is applied covered.
