Bergamot – Essential Oil
Bergamot has a light, fresh, floral citrus aroma that is uplifting, rejuvenating, calming and balancing. It is known to be an anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antidepressant, deodorant, and sedative. Commonly used in cosmetics to help balance oily skin, prevent acne, and help relieve skin irritations such as psoriasis and eczema. It is said to help alleviate fatigue due to stress, restore appetite, improve digestion, strengthen the immune system, and reduce fever as well as repel insects. Use carefully in skin preparations as citrus oils are known photosensitizers.
