Description

Calming the mind can be an exhaustive exercise. We all have weeks where the days seem so blended and tangled together that unraveling our thoughts feels impossible.

When life feels messy, Bergamot essential oil may help relieve scattered thoughts while promoting focus and clarity. Diffusing Bergamot with Lavender before bedtime can lead to sweet dreams and a restful wake. The clean uplifting citrus aroma will brighten your day and enhance feelings of wellbeing. It is also supportive in natural bug protection preparations.  

Native to Southeast Asia, Bergamot is cold pressed then vacuum distilled (if bergapten free) from the fruit of an evergreen citrus tree. The fragrant trees also line the Ivory Coast, Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria.  This small inedible fruit, grown prolifically in the Mediterranean climate was named after the town of Bergamo, Italy, where it is said, it was first distilled. It is well known for its use in the perfume and food industries, but don’t confuse it with other commonly named bergamots, such as bee balm (Monarda didyma) or bergamot mint (Mentha citrata).  Many traditional herbal formulas included a variety of citrus fruit peels to enhance digestion. 

Although the tree bears non-edible green and yellow fruit, the essential oil of the fruit has been used for its soothing aroma within perfumes and confections. Bergamot oil gives the world’s most popular scented, flavored tea – Earl Grey – its heady citrus aroma and flavor.  This lively essential oil is frequently added to perfumes and cosmetics. It is a major component in the original “4711 Cologne” formulated at the beginning of 18th-century Germany.
