The citrus scent of Bergamot Oil is sweet, fruity, and floral with hints of warm spice suggestive of Neroli. Used in aromatherapy, this oil is reputed to enhance mood, help lift negative feelings, enhance feelings of mental energy and help maintain healthy circulation. It is also reputed to enhance feelings of relaxation and calm. This comforting effect is thought to benefit those who suffer from high blood pressure, feelings of depression, and sleeplessness. It is also believed to help manage feelings of discomfort when dealing with aches and pains, stress, and anxiety.
Used cosmetically, Bergamot Essential Oil is reputed to help balance the skin tone, reduce the appearance of scars, and improve the appearance of blemishes, thereby promoting a rejuvenated appearance. This makes it a popular ingredient in moisturizers and soaps. Its refreshing citrus fragrance helps to reduce the potency of unpleasant scents, which makes Bergamot Oil an ideal ingredient in deodorants as well as room sprays. It is also reputed to be purifying, and to help manage feelings of discomfort from symptoms of colds, flu, and asthma.
