Interesting Bergamot Oil Info

It is bergamot that gives Earl Grey tea its flavor. Essential oils are now commonly used in the place of more expensive, dried bergamot peels. The oil is also used in the food and confectionery industry as flavor for liqueurs, aromatic teas, candies and candied fruits. The juice and skin of the fruit are used in the agro-alimentary industry for the production of soft drinks, jellies and jams.

Bergamot was the base for the original French "eau de cologne," and is used in many modern-day perfumes, fixing the aromatic bouquet and adding a top note of freshness to the fragrance.

Bergamot essential oil, a citrus, is not to be confused with the herb bee balm (Monarda didyma).

In the 18th century bergamot bark was shaped and dried into elaborately decorated boxes, which were highly prized among the French aristocracy.
