Benefits & Features:
- The antidepressant and relaxing properties of bergamot essential oil are well-known. It's an uplifting essential oil (not to be mistaken with a stimulating essential oil, which it isn't) that can aid with uneasiness, anxiety, insomnia, as well as possibly hyperactivity. It uplifts the spirits while also calming the soul, making it a perfect addition to massage oil for people who are stressed or depressed.
- In skin care, this essential oil’s antiseptic properties make it excellent for oily, acneic, and infected skin conditions. A hot compress of bergamot can be used on boils to draw out the infection and to help promote healing.
- It can also be used as a room scent, bath oil, or personal perfume on a daily basis. It is a component in the original "Eau de Cologne" formula and is used commercially in the creation of Earl Grey Tea. It also works well as a room and body deodorant. Bergamot essential oil has been used commercially as a bug repellent, though you may need to reapply more frequently when using one of your own, more natural concoctions without the chemical ingredients that commercial companies employ to make it last longer on the body.
