cientifically known as Citrus bergamia, Bergamot essential oil is extracted from the rind of Bergamot citrus fruit. This oil is used for its anti-depressant and anti-fungal properties.
Massage: Bergamot essential can be applied on skin or hair through massages. Dilute it with carrier oil or hair oil by adding 2-3 drops of the essential oil and blending it well.
Baths: Add 4-5 drops of Bergamot essential oil to your bath tub or 3-4 drops to your bucket and swish the water gently to mix the oil well. If you have dry skin, add a tablespoon of vegetable oil along with the essential oil.
Diffuser: Use 4-5 drops of Bergamot essential oil in a diffuser bowl filled with three quarters of water. Essential oils should never be burnt directly as the chemical structure can get changed with incineration.
This oil should be avoided by people with highly sensitive skin. Do not apply if going out in the sun.
