Bergamot oil is familiar to many as the flavoring in Earl Grey Tea. It is a popular ingredient in many fragrances, cosmetics and perfumes, and is most well known as the classic ingredient of eau-de-cologne. This light, fresh citrus oil is both uplifting and grounding.
According to Gabriel Mojay ("Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit"), Bergamot oil has the ability to help disperse stagnant Qi-energy, helping us to move forward with a lighter spirit and a more optimistic and energetic approach to life.
Bergamot essential oil can increase the susceptibility of the skin to burning if applied before going out into the sunlight. This Bergamot is Bergapten-free which reduces the susceptibility to photosensitizing and so is safer to use in massage oils and lotions.
