The Story

Bergamot: Citrus aurantium var. bergamia (Risso)

Why bergamot? Bergamot has a complex aroma (made famous as the characteristic flavor in Earl Gray tea) that combines a fresh citrus top note with herbaceous undertones. But, bergamot is no diva around the house! This aromatherapy essential oil is a powerhouse cleanser and is commonly used in household preparations to help refresh and “clear the air,” including diffusions and in surface cleaners. Bergamot is also a support for healthy skin and a beautiful addition to DIY skin and personal care items, including bath and massage blends.

Quality Assured: Our certified organic bergamot essential oil is responsibly sourced from Italy. The essential oil is expressed from the peel. Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for clinical use and entirely free of adulterants.

Bergamot is also considered one of the most effective essential oils for supporting a healthy mind and normal, balanced hormone levels.

Regulatory Status: Bergamot essential oil is listed on the FDA Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) list.

NOTE: Extreme care should be taken with topical application; bergamot’s 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.
