About

Bergamot essential oil is said to help ease congestion and aid the battle with some infections. Facilitates digestive system maintenance. Helps to relieve depression, stress and anxiety. Is extremely refreshing and uplifting. Used for concentration and motivation. In skin care, it can be used for oily skin types. We can no longer source the Bergamot - Ivory Coast and we now source from Italy.

Historical Snippets

Bergamot Essential Oil is known in Europe for its antiseptic properties and ability to reduce fever. Bergamot Essential Oil historically has a wide variety of therapeutic uses, some of which included digestive disturbances, lung inflammation and antiseptic. Bergamot Oil gives Earl Grey Tea its unique taste.

How To Use

Diffuse: Add a few drops to a diffuser to disperse around the room

Topically: Dilute essential oil with any carrier oil at a 2.5% ratio. This equates to 2.5ml essential oil/oils in total mixed with 100ml of chosen carrier oil. 1ml of essential oil is approximately 20-22 drops of oil.  Decant into a roller or glass bottle with eye dropper to apply easily or a larger bottle if using for massage. Please note this dilution rate is for adults and children over the age of 6. More information on children and essential oils is on our blog page. Essential Oils should not be used directly on the skin without mixing first with a carrier oil

Inhalation: Add 1-2 drops essential oil to a tissue and inhale at a distance while ensuring that the oil does not come into direct contact with the skin. Alternatively, you can smell the oil directly from the bottle.

 

Shelf Life 

Our freshly decanted Bergamot essential oil will last for 2-3 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly.

Primary Storage Considerations: Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation). Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.
Secondary Storage Considerations: Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.
