    About Bergamot Essential Oil: This delightfully versatile, delicately scented oil incorporates numerous healing properties, which will help you relax and restore your vitality by relieving stress and tension, building your immunity and restoring your physical, emotional and spiritual balance.

    Description of Aroma: A light, delicate, refreshing top note, a little like lemon and orange with slightly floral and balsamic overtones.

    Ruling Planet: Sun.

    Properties Beneficial To The Mind, Emotions and Spirit: Bergamot oil is especially helpful in relieving anxiety, stress, tension and depression, as it is both a sedative and an antidepressant. Yet it is also encouraging, uplifting and balancing to the mind and spirit. It's combination of refreshing and cooling qualities help with frustration and anger, possibly by calming and minimizing the action of the sympathetic nervous system - responsible for our fight or flight response.

    Interesting Facts: The tree takes its name from the Italian town of Bergamo in Lombardy, where the essence was first sold. Legend has it, however, that Christopher Columbus discovered the tree in the Canary Islands, then introduced it to Italy and Spain. Bergamot oil has been an ingredient in Italian fold remedies for centuries, most specifically for fevers and worms! It is used extensively by perfumers, is the aromatic ingredient in Eau-de-Cologne, and imparts the unusual flavour of Earl Grey tea.

    Properties Beneficial To The Physical Body: The oil's antibiotic action combats infection and relieves inflammation. It is also useful with many digestive and respiratory conditions, and is said to inhibit certain viruses and strengthen the immune system.

    Bergamot Oil Blending Suggestions: Bergamot mixes well with numerous other oils. Try blending it with other members of the citrus family, such as grapefruit, lemon, lime, neroli, orange, pettigrain, mandarin and tangerine. Others you may like to try include chamomile, coriander, cypress, eucalyptus, geranium, juniper, jasmine, lavender, marjoram, palmarosa, patchouli and ylang ylang.

    Alternative Suggestions For Use: Can be used as an insect repellent, and apparently keeps cats away from plants.

    Safety Precautions: Bergamot may irritate sensitive skin when exposed to sunlight, as it increases photosensitivity. This is due to the chemical bergaptene, which increases sensitivity to sunlight and may cause burning or skin pigmentation. Avoid strong sunlight for 24 hours after application.

    Dictionary Terms Explained

    Holistic Trader own brand oils - Essential oils
    We take great pride in the quality of our essential oil range.

    * They are non-adulterated and are as produced at the still
    * We specify the country of origin for each oil
    * Each oil has been independently tested by French chemist
    * Our essential oils are not blended unless we say specifically say so
    * No middlemen - straight from soil to bottle

    Originally the Holisticshop range of essential oils went under the name of Windflowers. This company was founded by a qualified aromatherapist, selling high quality oils to shops and aromatherapists throughout UK and the world. In 2003 the opportunity came up for Holisticshop to buy Windflowers, which we did. This acquisition has meant that since this time Holisticshop customers have been able to buy high quality oils at the price professional aromatherapists would expect to pay.

    Lower quality oils are available on the market but we continue to pick the best quality source for every oil. For example our lavender oil is "High Alpine" lavender from Mount Ventoux in the Pyrennes and the ylang ylang is the "complete" oil, not the ylang ylang II or III which come from a different stage in the distillation process. In the current climate essential oil prices on the open market have risen quite dramatically and some sellers are cutting quality. We have maintained quality, bought well and kept as competitive as always.

    We do not buy anonymous drums of essential oils on the open market and we do not redistill lower quality oils to remake a scientifically higher grade oil that does not smell great (this happens sometimes with ylang ylang). We know the country and the growers of all our oils. Please be assured by the care we take with making sure our oils are great quality. You will smell the difference.

    Bergamot - Balancing, clarifying, anti-depressant
    Bergamot essential oil is light, delicate and refreshing with a hint of lemon and orange. Its gentle yet powerful aroma is uplifting, balancing and calming for the mind, body and spirit.

    As an aromatherapist and a consumer bergamot is one of my favourite essential oils and this Holisticshop oil didnt disappoint. Bergamot is reputed for its uplifting properties. The fragrance is citrusy, cleansing, zesty and refreshing, and loosely reminiscent of lemon and lime a very pleasant aroma. Its colour is yellowy green, and be aware that bergamot is a thin oil so it does come out of the bottle quickly! The packaging is especially attractive as the blue bottle has a picture of the bergamot fruit on it and from a colour therapy point of view I wonder if blue bottles also imbue the oils with a peaceful quality too.
    I have personally had very good results over the years using bergamot blended with patchouli oil for use with anxiety and depression as it soothes and uplifts. It smells heavenly when mixed with jasmine for PMT and I have also used it as a cleansing aura and room spray along with a little jasmine and juniper. Other ways I used this particular oil was by diluting a few drops with 20ml full fat milk for a nice pick-me-up bath; a couple of drops on a piece of cotton wool and popped that in the vacuum cleaner as a room freshener whilst vacuuming and a few drops on an old cardboard car air freshener to freshen up the car again. Bergamot is like sunshine in a bottle for me, so its also particularly nice to use as a little ray of sunshine on winter days.
