Bergamot Oil


Native to tropical Asia but now extensively cultivated in Calabria in southern Italy and commercially grown in the Ivory Coast, Bergamot is a Fragrant Citrus Fruit with Yellow or Green colour depending on its Ripeness. The origins of the word “bergamot” was derived from the Turkish word ”bey armudu” or “bey armut” which means the “Lord of Pear”. Bergamot Oil is the Cold Pressed Extract of the Rinds of Bergamot, greenish-yellow in complexion with a fresh, sweet-fruity odour with a hint of spicy-balsamic undertone. Upon ageing, the essential oil turns into a brownish-olive oil colour. Bergamot essential oil is believed to have a wide array of benefits for the mouth, respiratory systems, skin, and urinary tract infections, and is said to be analgesic, stimulant, antiseptic, anti-depressant, tonic, antibiotic, sedative, disinfectant, anti-bacterial and anti-viral. Bergamot oil is thus considered to be helpful for pain relief, digestion, stimulant, insomnia, reducing scars, hair-loss treatment and hair growth.
