Some information about bergamot
The bergamot tree is 4 to 5 metres high. It was discovered by Christopher Columbus on the Canary Islands and introduced to Italy, now the world's leading producer. The essential oil has a more or less dark yellow-green colour and a characteristic fresh, fruity aroma.
It has an irresistible citrus and floral fragrance, combining perfectly with cypress, geranium, lavender, lemon and ylang-ylang. Its scent is fresh, floral and lemony. It leaves a tangy, sweet taste on the palate. The oil is expensive because of its low yield.
It is widely used in perfumery (eau de Cologne) and as a flavouring for teas (Earl Grey tea, for example). It is also used in certain confectionery products, such as Nancy bergamots.
Antifungal and healing, bergamot essential oil is excellent for treating various skin problems, such as acne, and soothes dry, irritated skin. An antiseptic, it is also recommended against colds and will soothe you. Both invigorating and relaxing, it is frequently used to relieve nervousness, anxiety and depression (calming and sedative).

Recommendations for use
Essential oils are powerful natural substances and should therefore be used with caution. Even though essential oils have been used since ancient times, their method of use and precautions are often poorly understood. Many books deal with essential oils. It is therefore advisable to refer to them for information on traditional methods of use.
100% pure and natural oil
An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (around 10,000 have been identified) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can be made up of between one and several hundred molecules, which helps to explain why some essential oils have numerous properties but differing therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties needed for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, deterpenated or mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with dropper caps.
Whether pure or blended, you can use them in our various diffuser models. The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis: consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file on the properties of essential oils in our thematic files.
Essential oils can help

But be careful, even though essential oils are often extracted from edible plants, their concentrations mean that you need to remain cautious and respect their curative powers. Using essential oils is relatively simple, and if you follow a few basic rules, they will put their therapeutic genius at your disposal. Using essential oils has more advantages than disadvantages.
