bergamot essential oil organic
$ 17.50

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 great, citrusy cleaner and is commonly used in household preparations to help refresh and “clear the air,” including diffusions and in surface cleaners. Bergamot can promote radiant skin and is 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 (preferred for therapeutic purposes) from the peel, and may have some wax settled at the bottom (a normal occurrence with expressed oils). Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilthand 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 use and entirely free of adulterants.

For instance, a GC of our bergamot oil showed 41.09% of limonene, 4.38% of beta-pinene, 1.27% of alpha-pinene, and 6.58% of gamma-terpinene. It also contains 27.46% of the ester linalyl acetate and 12.94% of the alcohol linalool. In addition, this oil has a specific gravity of .8724 and a refractive index of 1.467 at 20°C.
