Bergamot Essential Oil
The Bergamot or Citrus Bergamot tree produces a small greenish yellow round, slightly pear-shaped fruit. It is from the skin of this fruit that its beautiful essential oil is obtained. Small white flowers blossom on the tree in Spring producing an intoxicating scent that is found in many perfumes and Earl grey tea.
The region of Calabria (Italy) has the ideal climate and soil conditions. Some of the world’s best Bergamot hails from this region where farmers have grown and perfected farming techniques to produce the world’s highest quality essential oil. The “Green Gold” of this region is highly prized and anyone that smells it will understand why. Medicinally, Bergamot has been used for centuries in many healing modalities. Bergamot is useful for fighting infections, reducing stress and anxiety, protecting against skin infections, colds, flu, insomnia, and helping the body to rest.
