An important mention however, like many other citrus essential oils, it is highly recommended to dilute Bergamot essential oil since it contains a phototoxic element called bergapten. Should you use this oil on your skin and go out in the sun, you will sustain burns that can cause redness, skin irritation and potential scarring. If using topically it is advised to use approximately 1-2 drops maximum in 1 oz of carrier oil. Avoid direct sunlight if using over this amount for up to 18 hours after applying it to exposed skin.

What does Bergamot smell like?
  • Bergamot essential oil is made from the fresh fruit rind and it holds a top-middle note. The first element to hit your nose gives off a citrus bouquet due to its element d-limonene that is sharp and crisp. But the middle note nuances surface, giving off its soft, sweetness that has hints of lemon and pepper. It is also somewhat herbaceous with subtle flower essences. Its warmth exudes positive feelings and a sense of security.
