Bergamot is a citrus essential oil that is defined as a cross between a sour orange and a lemon. It is the oil that gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavor. It has the unique ability to be both uplifting and calming at the same time. It is wonderful to use as a purifying and cleansing agent for the skin while also having a calming effect. It is also used to fight bacteria, help reduce scars and reduce headaches and muscle tension.

Seven Super Uses for Bergamot Essential Oil

  1. Natural Mood Booster – bergamot can create feelings of joy, refreshment and energy by supporting healthy circulation. Rub 2-3 drops onto the hand and cup your mouth and nose. Breathe in slowly. Also apply it to your feet and the back of your neck.
  2. Stress Buster – relieve stress and anxiety by using bergamot in a diffuser or apply 1-2 drops   topically to the wrists and temples.
  3. Lymphatic Support – Apply 2-3 drops onto your feet before bedtime or mix 3-5 drops with a carrier oil for a calming and relaxing massage that may encourage lymphatic drainage.
  4. Immune Boost – to fight harmful bacteria and stress, take a drop or two of bergamot oil internally in a warm tea (only under the supervision of your healthcare professional) or diffuse it, inhale it directly or add it to a warm water bath.
  5. Digestive System Aid – To support digestion and regulate appetite, rub 3-5 drops of bergamot oil onto your stomach. This may stimulate muscle contractions in the intestines and the production of digestive juices.
  6. Natural Deodorant – add bergamot oil to deodorant or apply it directly to the armpits to help prevent the growth of germs that cause body odor. Combine bergamot with lemon, cedarwood or sandalwood oils to make a personalized fragrance.
  7. Food Cravings Fighter – Diffuse bergamot in the classroom, office or at home in between meals to help control hunger pangs.
