Bergamot is found throughout Southern Europe. It is now only cultivated around Calabria in Southern Italy and Sicily. It has a sweet, delicate, fresh fruity aroma resembling oranges and lemons. It is the most common substance found in our perfumes and is the main flavor in Earl Grey tea. It is a top note.
Overall Scent: A refreshing, flowery and gentle fragrance.

Properties: An energizing citrus oil, bergamot is an important ingredient in any cologne and perfume alike. This oil is known to balance the mind, relieve fear and calm anxiety. It is also known to increase ones sense of humor and well-being.

Use Suggestions: Add a few drops in a diffuser to freshen the aroma climate of your home. Sniff directly from the bottle to feel fresh and fight melancholy. Add 10 drops to your unscented body care to help for a luxurious experience. Bergamot can be blended with many different oils, "lifting" a blend to make it appear more energetic and lively than it might otherwise. This is a must have oil - especially during cold and flu seasons.

Blends well with:
Leaf Oils: Patchouli and Palmarosa
Flower Oils: Neroli, Ylang Ylang, Vertiver and Rose Geranium
Also Blends with: lemongrass or rosemary for a mentally stimulating effect, or ylang-ylang or jasmine for a physically uplifting effect.

General Tips: Undilluted essential oils in their purest state are extremely potent, and should be blended with a carrier oil or other medium prior to use directly on the skin, as the essential oil may cause irritation.
Extraction Method

The oil is extracted in the same manner as obtaining orange oil by pressing the peel or grating the rind without touching the white fleshy area called the pith. The essence runs from the torn cellis into a sponge and is later squeezed over a receptacle. This process is known as pressing.
Chemical Properties

Mostly consist of bergaptine (lactone), limonene (terpine), linalool (alcohol) and terpineol (alcohol).

Very useful in helping with urinary tract infections especially cystitis.
Nervous flatulence and loss of appetite.
Skin disorders linked to stress.
Acne, eczema, psoriasis and herpes.
Application Properties


Photosensitive for the skin.
