This light, fruity citrus oil has an uplifting, refreshing aroma. Notes of green and fruit blend nicely.
Ideas for use:
- Best used by inhalation: in a diffuser, spray or aromatherapy candle
- Try when feeling emotionally stuck: According to Gabriel Mojay (author of Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit), Bergamot oil has the ability to help disperse stagnant Qi-energy, thus encouraging the release of pent-up emotions.
- Do not use on skin if going into sun
NOTE: Bergamot essential oil has the potential to cause burns if applied before exposure to sunlight or tanning beds. Best to avoid using on skin to be safe.
