  Bergamot
Citrus bergamia, certified organic, cold-pressed rind, Italy.

Quantity:
 


Lovely green light citrus/floral note, fruity and warm, much used by perfumers as a top note. Encouraging, balancing to the spirit. Combats fatigue due to stress, tension and anxiety. Is reputed to strengthen the immune system. The flavoring in Earl Grey tea. Some authorities recommend it 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.

Mixes well with other Citrus Oils, Geranium, Ylangylang as well as other florals, such as Rose or Neroli. Some sources advise mixing with Lavender, but I'm not pleased with the result.

WARNING: Never apply Bergamot to skin that will be exposed to the sun. **For other possible oils to avoid, please see our Contraindications page.

BLENDS WITH: It's hard to think of an oil that doesn't blend well with Bergamot, but, for a short list: Black Pepper, Clary Sage, Cypress, Frankincense, Geranium, Helichrysum, Jasmine, Lavenders, Nutmeg, Rosemary, Sandalwood, Vetiver, Ylangylang.
