PURE BERGAMOT ESSENTIAL OIL
Named after the Italian city of Bergamo, where the tree was originally cultivated and the oil first distilled beginning in the eighteenth century, bergamot was used in traditional Italian folk medicine for the reduction of fever (including malaria) and to rid the intestines of parasites. Its seductively floral-citrus aromatic profile is so compelling that it has been used for centuries as a fragrance additive, and it gives Earl Grey tea its distinctive flavor.
Bergamot essential oil’s main action is on the nervous system, where its gently refreshing yet deeply relaxing properties help remedy bouts of insomnia and soothe tension headaches, achy or tight muscles, nervous indigestion, hyperactivity, and jitters brought on by anxiety. It’s a good oil for stressed-out folks! It has a particular affinity for relieving skin, scalp, mouth, urinary tract, and respiratory infections. I recommend it for treating stubborn respiratory ailments, slow-to-heal wounds, acne, athlete’s foot, and nail fungus. Weeping eczema and psoriasis also respond well to its gentle astringent action, encouraging welcome relief.
A light, clean-smelling, cheerful oil, bergamot is an excellent additive to purifying room sprays, especially when combined with lavender and lemon essential oils, and a hint of peppermint. Makes your home oh-so-fresh and fragrant . . . and inviting, too!
