Expressed from the peel of the bitter orange tree, Bergamot, which is known for its uplifting action, refreshes and restores. It is helpful for colds, flu and PMS as well as nervous digestive complains. A popular oil in the perfumery industry, it was the key ingredient in the traditional Eau de cologne that was being made in Italy in 16th C. This oil is also imparts the refreshing flavour attributed to Earl Grey tea.

It typically has a naturally occurring chemical called bergapten (a furanocoumarin) which is a phototoxic agent that produces abnormally dark pigmentation and reddening of the surrounding skin after exposure to UV rays. Bergapten has been removed from our Bergamot oil and so is safe to use on the skin in dilution.

Directions for Use
Essential oils are the highly concentrated active ingredients of plants. They should always be diluted in a base before use and should not be taken internally without professional recommendation.

  • Baths: Add 5 - 10 drops of essential oil(s) to a warm run bath. If skin is sensitive, blend the essential oil in a teaspoon of carrier oil first. Close the door so the vapours don't escape. Soak for at least 10 minutes relaxing and breathing deeply. For added moisturising dilute the oils in 10ml of carrier before adding to the bath.
  • Massage: add 5 - 6 drops of essential oil per 10ml of carrier oil. Mix thoroughly and apply liberally to the skin.
  • Inhalations: Add 4 - 5 drops of essential oil to a bowl of steaming water. Place a towel over your head, close your eyes and lean over the bowl. Inhale the vapour for a few minutes.
  • Burners and Diffusers: Fill the bowl of the burner/vaporiser with water and then add 3 - 6 drops of essential oil. Light the candle and the oil will evaporate as the water heats up. Do not let the bowl dry out.

Caring for Your Essential Oils
SOil essential oils and carrier oils are living products that are vulnerable to heat, moisture, air and light. It is best to store them in a cool, dark place with the lids well sealed. If your fridge is the only cool place around, allow the oils to reach a cool room temperature before use (around 20 degrees C).

  • My favourite essential oil
    09 Mar, 2014, By Kerry This is one of my favourite essential oils!!! I love mixing it with other oils in an oil burner and it has an amazing grounding effect. I mix it either with rose geranium and mandarin oil, or with cedarwood and francinsense.
