Bergamot, familiar from its widespread use in perfumes, has important mood balancing effects. A natural regulator of the hypothalamus, it steadies unstable emotions, quells anxiety, and is extremely effective for treating insomnia and depression.
As a nerve sedative, bergamot essential oil is simultaneously relaxing, stimulating, and tonifying. It uplifts, builds strength, pacifies fear and worry, and boosts the immune system.
The uses of this versatile oil do not end there, because Bergamot has a wide-spectrum use for disorders of the skin, and a long pedigree as an antidote to respiratory and urinary infections, fevers, and PMS symptoms.
Ideal for treating rashes, eczema and psoriasis, Bergamot essential oil has been shown to reduce scarring as well. It is useful for digestive difficulties and particularly effective for cystitis. Sprayed as a mist, it brightens the air while acting as a natural insect repellent.
Bergamot's antiseptic and disinfectant qualities make it an effective mouth wash for treating oral bacteria and help eliminating bad breath.
How To Use Bergamot Oil:
Bergamot essential oil is a phototoxic essential oil. Use only in low dilutions on the skin (.5% maximum), and avoid direct UV exposure for 12 hours after application. C. bergamia can also be used as in the bath, through direct inhalation, or diffuser.
To eliminate bad breath and disinfect the mouth, gargle with one drop bergamot diluted in two tablespoons warm water.
For cold sores due to stress, place one drop directly on sore (or use recommended formula).
To calm nerves and lift spirits, place a couple drops of bergamot along with lavender or sweet orange in bathwater.
For urinary tract infections and early stages of cystitis, place one or two drops in a warm bath, or use as a local wash.
Diffuse bergamot with myrtle and lemongrass to purify the air and clear stale smoke.
Bergamot Oil Recipes:
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 bergamot (Monarda didyma).
In the 18th century bergamot bark was shaped and dried into elaborately decorated boxes, which were highly prized among the French aristocracy.
Safety Considerations for Bergamot Essential Oil:
Though it is generally non-toxic and non-irritating, bergamot is extremely phototoxic. Do not expose skin to sunlight for 12 hours after application.
Repeated use can result in contact sensitization (rotate between different oils). Do not use on children younger than 5 years of age.
Do not take bergamot essential oil internally.
