Does your skin get angry whenever you eat junk food? Are your breakouts causing scars? Then Bergamot essential oil is the oil for you! Bergamot oil and the plant itself, are sensitive to soil quality and climate and require strict specifications for cultivation.
Regularly used 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 to promote clear skin. The oil has a calming effect and helps to reduce tension and stress, or calm feelings of sadness and helps to combat cravings.
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 a powerful ally to have on around when you want to look your best, feel your brightest or combat cravings.
To reduce tension, add 3-4 drops bergamot to your diffuser and diffuse regularly to ease stress, combat cravings, and lift your mood. Add a few drops to your bathwater at the end of the day to melt stress away. Don’t forget to emulsify first.
For skin health, blend 1 part Bergamot with 2 parts base oil and apply to the area of concern. You can also apply a bergamot blend topically in massage to relax your muscles. Simply rub 1-2 drops softly over the affected area.
