The flavor and aroma of bergamot essential oil impart the unique flavor to Earl Grey tea, but the therapeutic benefits extend way beyond just a pleasant aroma.
What It’s For
The sweet, tart aroma of bergamot is a favorite for perfumes and personal scents, as well as diffuser blends. It helps to calm erratic energy and create a relaxing atmosphere. Ayurvedic benefits include relief from fear and other negative emotions. Applied topically, this essential oil also has skin-cleansing properties. However, bergamot can cause photosensitivity, so avoid applying before spending time in the sun.
Like many other citrus essential oils, bergamot contains high concentrations of limonene. This constituent is energizing, soothing to the digestive system and calming to the mind. It also contains α-Pinene, which focuses and concentrates the mind.
