A sweet, lemon like, fresh top note with warm, floral and balsamic undertones. The Happy Oil, that brings sunshine and happiness
Bergamot Essential Oil
The Bergamot tree is a native of Southern Italy and produces small inedible (due to the sourness) fruits. The fruits ripen from Green to Yellow. Bergamot is seen as the king of all essential oils, being used in skin care products and perfumes for decades.
A sweet and lemony fresh top note with a warm, floral and balsamic undertone. A favourite with aromatherapists and oil burners for the uplifting and fresh scent and positive mind attributes.
Bergamot is the classic oil found in Early grey tea, which gives Earl Grey its distinctive flavour and therapeutic effects.
Oils to Blend with
Bergamot is very versatile in its blending and will go with most essential oils. It blends very well with other citrus oils as well as floral oils. We like blending Bergamot with Cypress, Sandalwood, Juniperberry, Coriander, Black Pepper, Ginger, Clary Sage, Rosemary and Frankincense.
Citrus bergamia (Bergamot) Leaf Oil
When the fruit is nearly ripe, is the best time to harvest the bergamot. The oil is expressed from the nearly ripe leaves.
