Latin name: Citrus bergamia  
Source country: Italy  
Appearance: Clear to pale yellow thin liquid.  
Aroma: Light, lemony, fresh, citrus.  
Derivation: The oil is extracted from the peel of the bergamot fruit.  
Chemicals: The active ingredients in bergamot oil are Melitidin, Brutelidin,  
Neoeriocitrin, Naringin, Neohesperidin, Ponceritin. The first two have statin like  
properties. One of the ingredients is bergaptene. This compound is phototoxic increasing  
redness of the skin after sun exposure. Most bergamot oils on the market (including ours)  
have this bergaptene removed and is labelled FCF ( fluorocoumarin free). It is safer to use  
this on the skin but care should still be taken.  
Uses: Bergamot blends well with other essential oils and is used in half of women’s and  
one third of men’s perfumes. The extract from the skin of the fruit is used in Earl Grey tea  
giving it the distinctive aroma. It can be used to treat anxiety and depression. It is useful  
for skin treatment and has been associated with treatment of psoriasis.  
Note: As with all pure essential oils, dilute appropriately with a suitable carrier oil  
before using on the skin. Do not take essential oils internally
