Bergamot is the most delicate of the citrus plants, requiring a special climate and soil in order to thrive. Italians have used Bergamot oil for hundreds of years to reduce feelings of stress and to soothe and rejuvenate skin. In Greece, the unripe fruits are used as sweetmeats, eaten by the spoonful as a dessert or with coffee. Do not expose skin to direct sun for 12 hours after use because citrus oils increase photosensitivity of the skin.
Bergamot essential oil is unique among citrus oils due to its ability to be both uplifting and calming, making it ideal to help with anxious and sad feelings. It also purifies and cleanses the skin while having a calming effect.
