Bergamot PlantMore Health Benefits of Pure Bergamot Oil

Does your skin get angry whenever you eat junk food? Are your breakouts scarring up your complexion so that you can barely recognize yourself? Bergamot oil is the oil for you! Bergamot oil and the citrus plant, itself, are sensitive to soil quality and climate and require strict specifications for cultivation.

Regularly utilized by the Greeks and Italians, bergamot oil offers a number of health benefits that support the mind and body. Bergamot possesses skin-rejuvenating properties that help promote clear skin. The oil has a calming effect which can reduce tension and stress, or abate feelings of sadness.

This is largely due to its bright and uplifting scent. The oil’s capacity to reduce tension, along with its natural ability to support healthy skin, make it one powerful agent to have on hand when you want to look your best and feel your brightest.

Therapeutic Applications

To reduce tension, add 3-4 drops bergamot to your diffuser and diffuse regularly. Add a few drops to your bathwater at the end of the day to melt stress away.

For skin health, put 1-2 drops on the area of concern. You can also use a drop or two of bergamot in your tea for a nice citrus flavor. Lastly, you can apply bergamot topically in massage to knead relaxation into your muscles. Simply rub 1-2 drops softly over the affected area.
