Bergamot is strongly antiseptic and uplifting, has a sweet fruity, citrus aroma and is clear in colour. Bergamot is the perfect oil to help lift that Monday-morning feeling any day of the week! The bergaptene content of this oil causes photosensitivity in sunlight.
It is recommended for use in massage only by qualified aromatherapists but is ideal for the home oil burner/diffuser. Absolute Aromas also stocks a bergaptene-free Bergamot, known as Bergamot FCF, which is safer for use on the skin.
Use in a burner to cleanse and uplift a room’s atmosphere. Experiment by blending with the other citrus oils, Cedarwood, Frankincense, Lavender or Clary Sage.
