Bergamot Essential Oil



Organic BERGAMOT Essential Oil

Citrus bergamia Italy, cold-pressed. Certified Organic Rind.

(See also our Bergamot FCF Essential Oil, below.)

  Bergamot essential oil offers a lovely green light citrus/floral note, fruity and warm, much used by perfumers as a top note.
  • Bergamot oil is emotionally encouraging, uplifting and balancing to the spirit.
  • Bergamot essential oil combats fatigue due to stress, tension and anxiety.
  • Bergamot oil is reputed to strengthen the immune system.
  • Bergamot Oil provides the flavoring in Earl Grey tea.
  • Some authorities recommend Bergamot Oil as a treatment for herpes, shingles, eczema and psoriasis, although much care must be used when applying it to the skin, due to the risk of photosensitivity. (We prefer Ravensara or Ravintsara oil in a base of Calophyllum innophyllum to ease the pain and inflammation of Shingles.)



15 ml $12.00




WARNING: Never apply pure and natural Bergamot Essential Oil  to skin that will be exposed to the sun. For topical use, when exposure to sunlight or ultraviolet light is expected, please see our Bergamot FCF Oil.

BERGAMOT FCF Essential Oil

Citrus bergamia  Distilled. (furo-coumarin/Bergaptine free) Organically produced in South Africa


Bergamot FCF

15 ml $18.00

ORDER Bergamot FCF Essential Oil

  After years of searching, I finally found a Bergaptine Free Bergamot Oil  that smells delightful.

Now, for therapeutic use and in the lamp or diffuser, I still want our organic, natural Bergamot described above. But natural Cold Pressed Bergamot Oil  is NOT a safe oil to use on skin that will be exposed to either sunlight or ultraviolet light, and should not be used for perfumes or massage blends that might cause sun damage.

This delightful Sicilian Bergamot Oil has had the Bergaptine removed so that it IS safe for your perfumes or massage blends. No, it's not a "pure and natural" oil, it has been adjusted for your safety. The producer has also decolorized it. The resulting oil has a mere tint of green to it, but not the richer green of our Pure and Natural Bergamot above. This is the Bergamot you want for use in skincare, toiletries, etc.

WARNING: SAFE for Sun and UV light Exposure.

Bergamot Oil Blends With:

It's hard to think of an oil that doesn't blend well with Bergamot, but, for a short list, try blending with: Black Pepper, Clary Sage, Cypress, Frankincense, Geranium, Helichrysum, Jasmine, Lavender Essential Oil, Nutmeg, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Vetiver, and Ylang Ylang. 


Blends featuring Bergamot Essential Oil:

 Classic Eau de Cologne
3 drops lavender essential oil.
2 drops rosemary essential oil.
1-2 drops bergamot FCF essential oil.

One of Elizabeth Millar's "Romance" blends:

2 drops Bergamot Oil
2 drops Jasmine Grandiflora Absolute
2 drops Rose Absolute or Rose Otto
2 drops Ylangylang  Oil    

The Bergamot Oil  lightens the 'sultriness' of the exotic florals in this one.  NICE!

Anger Reducing Blend:

Roman Chamomile Essential Oil(3 drops)
Rose Absolute (2 drops)
Bergamot Essential Oil (5 drops)

either blend and add to a spoonful of honey for a bath,  use in the aroma lamp or diffuser, or dilute in one ounce of carrier oil for a soothing massage blend. 

Smoke Eater Blend:

To freshen the air in a room, and remove stale smoke, blend equal parts of Bergamot Oil, Lemon Oil, and Himalayan Lavender oil.  Use in aromalamp for best effect.


The classic chypre perfumery accord is composed of Bergamot Oil, Oakmoss Absolute, and either Cistus Oil or Labdanum Absolute.
