Perfumery: Bergamot is an important and classic perfume material. It gives a delicate top note, along with strength and body, to a fragrance blend. Unlike most citrus oils, it does have a certain fixative effect when used in high concentrations. It imparts a refreshing characteristic Eau de Cologne fragrance. The fresh citrus fragrance has an uplifting effect on the mind.

Oils That Blend Well With Bergamot: Bergamot oil's delicate aroma blends well with chamomile Chamaemelum nobile (Roman) or Matricaria recutita (German), coriander Coriandrum sativum, cypress Cupressus sempervirens, geranium Pelargonium graveolens, jasmine Jasminum grandiflorum, juniper Juniperus communis, lavender Lavandula angustifolia, lemon Citrus limonum, neroli Citrus aurantium var. amara, rose attar Rosa damascena, and sandalwood Santalum album.

NOTE: Extreme care should be taken with topical application, because its bergaptene content can cause abnormal skin pigmentation and possible skin cancer when exposed to the sun. This action is intensified if the bergamot is blended with alcohol. All sunscreens containing bergaptene are banned in Europe. Shirley Price recommends avoiding exposure for at least two hours after using a 1% dilution. We recommend avoiding exposure for at least 12 hours regardless of dilution, as ultraviolet light exposure is increasing with the continued depletion of the ozone layer. Do not use at the same time as photosensitizing drugs, as the bergapten content can compound photosensitizing effects and increase the risk of side effects
