Bergamot is a lesser-known citrus fruit, also called the Bergamot Orange, and originated in the town of Bergamo in Northern Italy. The oil is cold-pressed from the peel of the fruit, which has been compared in size to an orange and in color to a lemon or lime.

Spark Naturals Bergamot essential oil has a wonderfully uplifting, fresh, bright, citrus scent. It makes a FANTASTIC addition to diffuser blends and is typically regarded as a "top note."

Historically, Bergamot essential oil has been used to support recovery from UTIs, promote a healthy response to depression and anxiety, combat cold sores, and in perfumery and skin care (although Bergamot does sensitize the skin to sun, so care must be taken to use it well diluted [no more than 2% of the total mixture] and avoid direct sun exposure after use).

Bergamot essential oil is believed to have antiseptic, antimicrobial, antidepressant, analgesic, antispasmodic, febrifuge, digestive, and deodorant properties. It's quite the powerhouse!
