Bergamot is valued for its uplifting aroma and stimulating properties, making it a useful addition to your aromatherapy kit. Refreshing bergamot oil is extracted from the almost ripe, yellow-green citrus fruit of the bergamot tree. Its fruity, citrus scent with delicate, woody undertones has made it a valued oil through the ages. Bergamot is refreshingly uplifting and stimulating. It acts on the central nervous system and is a good tonic for treating symptoms of 21st-century living, such as stress, tension and anxiety. It is invigorating but not over-stimulating, helping the mind to achieve balance.
Useful medicinal properties
Bergamot has antispasmodic and calmative properties, useful in treating digestive problems.

A valuable antiseptic and coolant, it is effective in treating infections and inflammation. It is especially useful for stress-related skin conditions.
The fragrance and versatility of bergamot make it an essential addition to your aromatherapy treasure chest.
