At times we could all use a little sunshine. Grown in Northern Italy, our Bergamot essential oil will bring a little drop of zesty happiness to your day, no matter how gloomy the outlook.
Bergamot is a type of bitter orange with greenish-yellow skin. Its pulp is too sour to eat, so this uplifting, fruit yielding plant is grown purely for the extraction of essential oil from its peel.
Bergamot has been used in perfumery formulations going back to the sixteenth century. The refreshing and strong citrus fragrance is also used to flavour Earl Grey tea.
Mostly used in aromatherapy for its cheering and uplifting qualities, Bergamot is a versatile oil that can also be used in a host of beauty blends and products for the home.

Product Description: Bergamot essential oil comes from the Bergamot tree, which is native to Europe and South Asia. The tree blossoms oval green leaves and white flowers. The essential oil actually comes from peels of the yellow fruit that the tree naturally produces through cold compression which is different than the steam distillation of many other essential oils.
