Citrus aurantium var. bergamia is an upright tree up to 39 ft with a single trunk and numerous branches. Historically speaking, the tree has grown almost exclusively in a coastal strip in the southern part of Calabria, Italy. Bergamot Essential Oil is produced by cold expression from the peel of the ripe fruit. The oil is a green or olive-green, mobile liquid of an extremely rich & sweet-fruity top note, followed by an oily-herbaceous and somewhat balsamic body. Although Bergamot has a tart aroma, there are also sweet and relaxing elements, making it a popular addition to perfumes.
Refreshing and uplifting it may assist in relieving depression, nervous tension, stress and anxiety, and insomnia. Bergamot has attracted attention for its skin-cleansing properties, and its elegant scent makes it a popular addition to luxury shampoos, creams & cleansers.
The Aromatherapy Place offers a wide variety of AUROMA Bergamot Essential Oils to suit your preference. Over time, treat yourself to a special sensual experience by trying and comparing the qualities of each. There are slight variations in odor, color, and the levels of constituents within each oil. However, the oils are similar and can be used in place of one another.
NOTE: Bergamot imparts a pleasant flavor to Earl Grey tea and is considered one of the most popular essential oils for use in perfumery.

To meet the stringent demands of the professional aromatherapist, AUROMA has drafted the following seven requirements that an essential oil needs to meet so it can be used with confidence:
- BIO-TYPE: Not only does an oil have to come from a defined botanical species, but from a particular genetic strain.
- CHEMO-TYPE: The same botanical species can often produce completely different constituents.
- GEO-TYPE: Oils from a particular area are often of superior quality. Examples are Rose Oil Bulgarian or Sandalwood East Indian.
- COMPLETE OR WHOLE: The oil should come from a single distillation and should not be rectified.
- WILD OR ORGANIC: Where possible, AUROMA always selects the wild growing plants for distillation. When wild types are not available, AUROMA commissions farmers who do not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Certified Organic options are available.
- EX STILL: AUROMA distills small lots of expensive oils in-house and advises farmers on distillation methods.
- ANALYYSIS: Oils are tested by AUROMA in Australia with the most advanced state-of- the-art equipment in the world.
- Just to smell: You can enjoy the aromatherapy of your favorite Essential oil or Blend without even taking it out of the bottle. Keep a bottle in your purse or your car. Simply open-up and smell. This can be particularly helpful during times of stress.
- As a natural Perfume: Dab a couple drops of your most aromatic Essential Oils or Blend onto your wrists, in the same way you might use perfume. Do a patch test first before putting any Essential Oil Blend directly on your skin. See “Cautions.”
- As an Air Freshener: Fill a 4-fluid ounce glass mist spray bottle with water and add your Essential Oil or Blend. Tighten the cap, shake well before using and spray the mist into the air. As the air freshener ages, the sent improves and becomes stronger. Spray around your room, your clothes, even your pillow.
- In a Diffuser: Using a diffuser with an Essential Oil or Blend is an easy way to make your space smell wonderful, while using aromatherapy to revitalize and purify your indoor space.
- For your hair: Using Bergamot Essential Oil is great way to keep your hair smelling like a gift from Mother Nature. Add a couple drops to coconut oil to moisturize and perfume hair simultaneously. See “Cautions.”
