Definitely, a must-try if you are looking to support your emotional health and well-being with aromatherapy. Most unique in its ability to lift your mood while keeping you calm and secure.
Take a whiff of bergamot essential oil and you’ll likely understand why it's most valuable in supporting emotional health and well-being. It’s set apart from its other citrus counterparts because its initial citrus, sweet, fruity aroma is nuanced with neroli-like, herbaceous, and peppery notes coupled with a high linalyl acetate content similar to lavender. Simply put, it has both the uplifting, inspiring quality of citrus oils combined with the calm security you can find from lavender. It’s so unique, that our words can’t seem to do justice to the quality it brings. Definitely a must-try!
100% Pure, Therapeutic Quality Bergamot (Citrus bergamia) Essential Oil
IN A DIFFUSER
Try 10 drops for every 200ml of water in your diffuser.
IN AN AROMATHERAPY INHALER
Feeling a little down? Try adding 12-15 drops of Pure Bergamot Essential Oil on the cotton wick of your blank aromatherapy inhaler (hale stick), close then start breathing in the aroma intermittently. Relax, de-stress and enjoy as you breathe in the uplifting yet calming aroma of bergamot essential oil.
May be used on skin safely at 0.4% dilution (1-2 drops per 30ml of carrier). See safety considerations below.
Phototoxic – Avoid direct sunlight or tanning beds for up to 18 hours after applying bergamot oil to the skin. Bergamot oil must not be applied to the skin undiluted. Serious skin burning or damage can occur if bergamot oil is applied and the skin is exposed to the sun or a tanning booth. It may be used safely (no phototoxic response) on the skin in a blend at no more than 0.4% (approx. 1-2 drops per 1 oz/30 ml of carrier). If you are using the oil on an area of your skin that has no exposure to the sun or UV light, then there is no safety concern. (Source: Aromahead Institute, Aromatherapy Certification Program)
PRO TIP: It’s always best to start with a fewer number of drops and then increase as desired but within safety guidelines.
