INCI: Citrus aurantium bergamia
COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: Italy
ODOUR: Refreshing, sweet, citrus, lemony scent with a slight floral undertone.
COLOUR: Colourless to straw coloured.
EXTRACTION METHOD: The Bergamot tree originates from a city called Bergamo in Italy where it was first cultivated. It was traditionally used in Italian folk medicine. The tree itself is small with circular fruits with a unique knobbly looking peel. The essential oil is extracted by cold pressing the peel of the fruit. Earl Grey is flavoured with Bergamot Oil.
Cold pressed Bergamot oil is phototoxic on human skin, which means that is can cause sensitivity and over pigmentation of the skin in sunlight. This is why, here at Naissance, we have removed the furocoumarin from our Bergamot Oil, making is safe to use on the skin in sunlight.
Bergamot is a popular oil for aromatherapy for its uplifting and balancing powers. Its wonderfully refreshing and reviving aroma is said to instil feelings of calm, freshness and happiness. Get a positive vibe by inhaling the citrusy, sweet scent.
Bergamot Oil is used in many skincare preparations. It is naturally cleansing whilst providing a soothing and calming sensation to the skin. As part of a skincare oil blend, it can be good for those who have oily or dry skin.
