Why bergamot (bergaptene free) essential oil? Our bergamot (bergaptene free) essential oil has all the versatile benefits of bergamot without the sun sensitivities one may encounter when using a bergaptene variety. This bergamot essential oil can be used as a flavoring agent for its sweet and fruity, yet refreshing taste. It has a fresh citrus aroma that encourages radiant skin. Try as an exquisite addition to DIY skin and personal care items, including bath and massage blends.
Quality Assured: Our organic bergamot (bergaptene free) essential oil is responsibly sourced from Italy. The bergamot fruit is uniquely distilled to create the essential oil. First, the rind of the bergamot orange is cold-pressed to create the traditional bergamot essential oil. This oil is then steam distilled and decanted to separate the furocoumarines (including the bergaptene) of the cold pressed essential oil.
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 use and entirely free of adulterants.
