Bergamot essential oil

July 05 2018

I​t​ has always been our ethos to scent our products purely​​ with​ essential oils, and over the ​coming​ weeks we w​ill​ share the​ir​​ ​therapeutic benefits​ with you​. The first in our series is Bergamot.​​

Bergamot essential oil

Bergamot essential oil is extracted from the rind of the fruits from the Bergamot tree (Citrus bergamia). Thought to be named after the Italian city in which it originated. This truly amazing oil has a citrusy but sweet-smelling aroma loved by many and has powerful mood-stabilising effects.

The oil can be used to promote relaxation, help alleviate the symptoms of anxiety and stress, and with its soothing aroma can also assist in achieving a restful state for a good night's sleep. But that's not all; key constituents of its aroma also make it a perfect pick-me-up with a fresh, uplifting fragrance.

It will therefore be no surprise that we utilise bergamot in a number of our blends including, happiness, uplifting and relax.
