Bergamot essential oil comes from the oils in the skin of oranges and it has a floral and also fruity aroma. It was originally used simply as a perfume because of its refreshing scent, however, its healing powers were soon discovered.  Today, we’ll discuss a few ways to use bergamot’s natural healing powers in your home.

  • put a few drops of bergamot into a diffuser for a fresh, citrusy and slightly floral scent that will ease stress, anxiety and depression
  • mix 2 to 4 drops of bergamot into a teaspoon of almond or jojoba oil and massage sore muscles to relieve tension and inflammation
  • mix 1 part bergamot to 5 parts of aloe vera oil or aloe vera gel and apply twice a day to treat skin problems such as acne, eczema, athlete’s foot and other fungal infections
  • add 5 drops of bergamot to your bath and relax for at least 15 minutes to relieve mental and physical tension and treat larger areas of skin problems
  • blend bergamot with chamomile, lavender or geranium to make your own natural perfume

Bergamot is another essential oil to use in your home for healthier, natural living. Not only is it naturally antiseptic and anti fungal, it also smells wonderful.
