BERGAMOT OIL, ITALY

Latin Name:  Citrus bergamia Risso et Pioteau, fam. Rutaceae

Part of Plant:  Peel

Country of Origin: Italy

Method of Production:  Cold pressed

 

Popular for its use with Earl Grey tea and the fragrance industry, Bergamot is grown primarily in Italy where it was named after the city of Bergamo.  Unlike many other citrus oils of the Rutaceae botanical family in which the essential oils are commonly a by-product of the juicing industry, in the case of Bergamot, the juice is actually the by-product of the essential oil industry. 

 

Because of its phototoxicity, Bergamot essential oil is best used by inhalation in something like a diffuser or an aroma stick.  In contrast to other citrus oils, it has a scent that is slightly floral and green, with a hint of citrus, that blends well with other citrus oils as well as many woods and florals.  Try diffusing for a fresh scent that helps to create a calming and uplifting atmosphere after a long day. 

 

Usage ideas:

  • Add a few drops of essential oils to a diffuser, cotton round, or a tissue.

For convenience on the go…

  • Properly dilute with your choice of carrier oils in a roller bottle.

  • Add up to a total of 15 drops of essential oils to a personal aromatic inhaler (aroma stick).

 

Safety:

Dermal Max: 0.4%

    Now younger than her years!

    Remy, my 9 year old black mouth cur and favorite walking buddy, highly recommends Dr. P's Doggie Drops! Since starting those she has a spring in her step and a smile on her face!

    Review of mobile website

    The website is pretty, visually, and it appears to be easy to navigate. My suggestion though, because it's infuriating to me, is that when I go to check out a specific oil, and read reviews on it, when I go back to shopping, it takes me back to the very first page of the essential oils. It is aggravating when I am down into the site by four or five pages and I get thrown back to the very beginning again. Anyway for you to fix this?

    I didn’t order online, but I did visit Crystal in the shop! Wow! What a wonderful experience!

    These are some of the oils that I purchased today from her, and I am absolutely pleased with their quality!

    I will definitely be returning to expand my collection from this amazing business!

    4 Back leg surgeries

    My 10 year old Australian Shepherd has had both back leg CCL's repaired and one leg had to have 3 surgeries. She still walks and functions, but she also askes for her CBD oil. She doesn't take it everyday, but a few times a week. I really don't know what we would do without it. Thank You so much!
