Some information about bergamot

Organic bergamot essential oil

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 leading producer. The essential oil has a more or less dark yellow-green colour and a characteristic fresh and fruity aroma. Its fragrance, irresistible with citrus and floral scents, combines wonderfully with cypress, geranium, lavender, lemon, and ylang-ylang. Its scent is fresh, floral and lemony. In the mouth, it leaves a tangy and sweet taste. 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 found in certain confectionery products, such as Nancy bergamots.

An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not 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 a dropper cap.
