Rich, and at the same time fresh, the scent of bergamot is reminiscent of lemons and oranges. Bergamot, hailing from the citrus branch of the essential oil family tree, can improve your mood when you are feeling tired, as well as calm you down when you are anxious or glum.
Bergamot essential oil is considered to be one of the most important citrus oils. The fresh fruit of bergamot themselves are not edible and are bitter and sour tasting. The oil is extracted from the rind of bergamot’s fruit.
The bergamot fruit is named after the city of Bergamo, which is located in the Lombardy region of Italy and where it was used in local folk medicine to treat inflammation, as well as ridding people’s intestines of parasitic worms. This essential oil does not have that sharp smell that is common among other citrus fruit rind oils.
The aroma can be described as an especially intense lemon and orange scent, which morphs into more of a floral, freesia-like fragrance and is completed by herbal and balsamic notes.
What can you blend bergamot essential oil with?
