More than just Earl Grey...

Updated: Jan 20

Beautiful Bergamot is more than just the flavour you get in your Earl Grey tea!

I just love the scent that you get from this golden oil, it is so versatile and can be blended with so many other amazing oils to give a vast array of different combinations.

“It can also help combat oily skin and acne, cystitis, cold sores and anxiety or stress.”

Bergamot (Citrus bergamia)

Is a type of citrus fruit that is grown in the beautiful country of Italy. The essential oils are taken from the peel and juice of the fruit, and are used to make the wonderful golden or green oil. Bergamot oil is widely used in aromatherapy with it's floral yet citrusy top note tones.

It can also help combat oily skin and acne, cystitis, cold sores and anxiety and stress. However, due to the Bergaptene (which is a naturally occurring constituent found in cold pressed Bergamot oil), is is highly phototoxic and must not be used when exposed to the sun or UV rays. You can get varieties of the oil that are FCF free (furocoumarin) which are much safer.

This information is intended to be educational only and not as medical advice.

As with all essential oils, you should never apply them directly to your skin and they must be used with a carrier oil or base cream. If you are pregnant, epileptic, have liver damage, have cancer, or have any other medical problem, use oils only under the proper guidance of a qualified aromatherapy practitioner. Use extreme caution when using oils with children.
