Bergamot essential oil is expressed from the fruit peels of a tree in the citrus family indigenous to Asia. Although the pear-shaped fruit is inedible, the spicy yet fruity-scented expressed oil is widely used in the cosmetic and fragrance industries. Bergamot essential oil is also a flavoring agent in traditional Earl Grey Tea.

what else you should know

essential oil

Bergamot is a type of bitter orange with greenish-yellow skin. Its pulp is too sour to eat, so the fruit is produced solely for the extraction of the essential oil from the peel. It is not possible to grow bergamot trees from seed. Instead, young shoots are grafted onto rootstock of other species, such as bitter orange or lemon, to propagate new trees.

This oil has a delightful aroma: fresh and young with strong citrus notes, and a sweetness as it evaporates.

Bergamot is phototoxic: avoid massaging it into your skin if you are going out into strong sunlight

This oil is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-sensitizing, so safe for all skin types
