Essential Oil of the Month

(Citrus bergamia)

Bergamot orange is known for it’s sweet
citrusy aroma.  The essential oil is expressed from the peel of this fruit. 
It is uplifting, refreshing, while promoting
a sense of calm and stability.  There is N
atural Bergamot with bergaptenes and Bergamot FCF or BF which is further
rectified to remove the bergaptenes.  Due to its analgesic properties it is found in  many skin care products.
When using natural Bergamot  essential oil that is not
ergaptene-free, sunlight and tanning lights should be avoided as they can cause extreme skin sensitivity (photo-sensitizer). Beneficial for anxiety, anger, frustration, stress related issues and depression.
