Essential Oil of the Week: Bergamot

bergamot-essential-oil

Bergamot is a potent citrus plant whose rind is used for extracting the bergamot essential oil. It requires a specific climate in order to grow as it is a tropical plant, but is also found in some parts of Europe. Italians and Greeks have been using it for centuries as a stress reliever, and bergamot’s ability to relieve stress is only one of the purposes it serves.

  • Stimulant: Bergamot’s refreshing scent assists in creating an uplifting and calm atmosphere. It is perfect to diffuse in tension environments such as classrooms or workplaces.
  • Disinfectant: The disinfectant and antibacterial properties of bergamot help prevent the spread of bacteria.
  • Decongestant: Assists in clearing respiratory conditions and is particularly useful when trying to combat a cold or cough.
  • Anti-fungal: Recent research has demonstrated that bergamot has powerful anti-fungal properties that assist in topically fighting fungal infections on the skin. Note: It is not recommended to apply pure essential oils directly on the skin unless they have been diluted with water or a carrier oil.
