5 Wonderful Benefits of Bergamot Essential Oil

Bergamot is a delicate and unique citrus-type essential oil. Armed with a slightly different nature than the other citrus oils, Bergamot offers a sweet yet spicy lemony scent.

Bergamot offers incredible properties that enhance both physical and emotional wellness. Women, especially, can benefit from this sought after essential oil and here’s why:


Bergamot Essential Oil for Mood

Bergamot has natural properties that lifts mood, alleviates emotional pain and drives away feelings of sadness. It’s a relaxant during times of turmoil making it a wonderful choice for stress relief.  Bergamot is often used during the winter months to combat the blues and can help you feel inspired, hopeful and motivated. Because of its fresh, sweet aroma it’s one of my favorite essential oils for boosting mood.


Bergamot Essential Oil for Skin Care

A popular skin cleanser, Bergamot essential oil is known to comfort skin irritations and even out skin tone when applied daily; its antibacterial properties helps to restore the skin quickly and it is often used with a carrier oil to purify, moisturize and brighten your complexion. Bergamot essential oil makes a wonderful addition to your skin care routine.

Because Bergamot has been known to inhibit the growth of germs, fungi and viruses it is commonly used to care for a variety of conditions; Bergamot is one of the top choices for problematic skin and is a big comfort for broken or cracked teeth. A natural source with antibiotic, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties; it is already regularly used in soaps, skin care and the bath because of it.


Bergamot Essential Oil as a Natural Deodorizer

Bergamot’s fresh, citrusy sweet aroma combined with its antibacterial properties; make it a strong natural deodorizer.  Women use it, combined with fast-absorbing carrier oil, as a natural deodorant; it’s applied to the armpit right after your shower and it works! It also eliminates foul odors in the air and works beautifully to refresh closed off spaces.


Bergamot Essential Oil for Digestion

The essential oil of Bergamot activates secretions in the digestive tract that speeds up digestion. It’s used as a digestive aid and most often consumed as a tea. The popular Earl Grey tea blend is flavored with the addition of Bergamot essential oil. When the intestinal tract is healthy and functioning properly you’ll experience more energy and every aspect of your physical and emotional well-being improves.


Bergamot isn’t as simple as ‘another’ essential oil. Its properties are POWERFUL, unique and diverse, and it offers amazing benefits that shouldn’t be ignored. It complements a lifestyle of wellness and provides long lasting emotional support while boosting mood and outlook. It pairs well with others and it’s one of my favorite additions when I make essential oil blends. If you haven’t added Bergamot essential oil to your collection, I highly recommend you get your hands on it!
